Kumagai-san is a DJ and radio presenter, currently hosting a weekly show on Shibuya FM Radio, Sundays at 5PM. He has a long history in the music business as a record buyer and DJ, and on this mix he’s sharing a selection of contemporary music featured on his radio program over the last two years. The set kicks off with three tunes from American female musicians, Nicole Atkins, Nicki Bluhm and Ani DiFranco, and then into the group The Delines and a groovy one by Mike Dillon and the Malletmen.
Kumagai-san then moves around the world with new music from Amsterdam based Anatolian psychedelic band Altin Gün, vocalist Nahawa Doumbia from Mali, and even one from the latest album by Danyèl Waro from Réunion island in the Indian Ocean, a superstar of the insanely propulsive Maloya music from Réunion.
