TUNE Masaki Hanakata - Africa
Masaki Hanakata - Playful, joyful & upful sound, how could we resist?
He plays the guitar, piano, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, glockenspiel and more instruments, he records and produces everything in his own studio in Kochi, Japan. Like any modern musician, he only leaves his studio/home to regularly play his craft out.
Is it folk or pop music? Children’s music? Who cares it is just lovely. The song ‘Africa’ expresses our gratitude to the continent which has brought so much, and ‘Owl’ is dedicated to the nocturnal bird, that has eaten so much.
