According to the Okinawa Cyura Sounds blog (which happens to also be one of my favorite podcasts from Okinawa), Argentine-born nisei (2nd generation) Claudia Oshiro will soon be making her CD debut with The Boom’s Kazufumi Miyazawa as producer! I couldn’t find much info on the album yet — it’ll be called “CLAUDIA” — but she’s streaming two songs on her MySpace.
Pretty excited about this release and I’m wondering if it’ll sound like Yoriko Ganeko’s “Kui nu Hana” album (which was also produced by Kazufumi). I’ll have an update on this (hopefully with an album cover and track list) as more info becomes available. In the meantime, be sure to check out her MySpace to check out the two songs she has up.
