Episode 8: Yamato Nadeshiko

Arashiyama, Japan. Picture by Will.

This episode is exclusively female vocalists of Japan, especially late 70s into mid 80s.  We’ve got a lot of synth, jazz, a little electronic here and there, and a few good old classic ballads from around that time.  A few of these artists you might be familiar with from previous episodes, like Wink or My Little Lover, but many of them will be new.  Hope you enjoy.
