Minyo Crusaders feature on this tribute album to legendary enka singer Harumi Miyako.
Miyako made her first record in 1964 going on to record over 20 studio albums during her peak from the mid 1960s to the late 80s, also acting in several film roles. During the early 1990s she was touted as one of the great voices from Japan, performing at the WOMAD festival, amongst others.
Minyo Crusaders perform “Ara Mitetanonene” re-versioning it with a beat they describe as “Nubian Funk meets the Drifters”
