TOKYO’S OTONANA TRIO ANNOUNCE NEW VIDEO “SENSEI” & U.S. TOUR
Masters of Party Funk Deliver Tight + Hilarious Japanese-Infused Songs + Shows
Otonana Trio are more playful than ever in new video “Sensei”, off their recently released album SpacePowerDelight (October 2016). Drummer Hikari Kuroda plays the earnest school mistress, losing control of her unruly ‘students’-- guitar-vocalist Kentaro Saito and bassist Kazuhisa Maesawa. “Sensei” features traditional jazz guitar inspired by late 1960s’ greats such as Wes Montgomery, delivered via funky Fender Stratocaster by Saito, an ace player who earned top honors while studying music in New York and Los Angeles. The song fits into the motif of SpacePowerDelight, as senseis who teach space aliens the Japanese way. Check out OTONANA TRIO "Sensei"
These one-of-a-kind, j-rock-pop-funksters are heading Stateside to teach us some Japanese play on the ‘Show Us Who You Are Tour’, February 23 through March 16, 2017. Named for the chorus from album track “The Name You’ve Got”, the band revisits favorite locales from their frequent tours to reconnect with loyal fans, plus adds new towns to their routing throughout the South and Southwest.
Shake off the late winter doldrums and learn a thing or two about fun with Otonana Trio!
