Tokyo ON #078: Voices from Beyond
Maction Planet Resident DJ Royce Leong learns from history in a special episode of Tokyo ON.
These are tumultuous times. Recognizing the futility of war and the needless loss of life, on this special episode we look at some of the stories behind songs by the Boom, Misora Hibari, ECD, and more as we search for meaning and lessons from history and lived experience. Even if you recognize some of the songs, context, as it seems, is everything. One time for love, two times for peace.
Our tour guests, listeners to Maction Planet Radio and readers of our blog know that one of our many goals is to open up Tokyo’s diverse music culture to visitors. We run Tokyo Music Tours, introducing people to the varied range of music in this amazing city. Like everything we do, your Tokyo Music Tour is private and can be fully customised around the rest of your time touring The World’s Greatest Metropolis, where everything old is new again!
