Product Description

Currently one of the most in-demand live acts at Japanese festivals, Ryukyudisko consists of twin brothers Tetsushi Hiroyama (rhythm and sequence) and Yosuke Hiroyama (vocals, mix, effects) or RKD1 and RKD2 respectively. There must be something in the twin's brotherly understanding, as when they get on stage to perform their signature blend of Okinawan traditional music with techno, it seems an entirely natural mixture that even someone who might hate techno can somehow get into. The contrasts in their music can hardly be more different, deeply rooted traditional Okinawan music and machine powered driving rhythms. Female vocalist and sanshin player Natsuki Nakamura adds a further dimension in the roots cause. Peekan is their second full album and mostly consits of full on techno beats with plenty of traditional Okinawan sanshin and rhtyhms. A radical reworking of one of Asia's thriving musical traditions.
