Shurayo by Frou Frou (Imogen Heap & Guy Sigsworth)

In addition to being a fan of Okinawan music, I also listen to a lot of other music and have been a fan of Imogen Heap and her band with Guy Sigsworth, Frou Frou. In 2019 they released an EP called Shurayo featuring the tracks Shurayo, Shimauta, and Shurayo (Mika’s Version).

So you must be wondering “wait a minute, I see Imogen and Guy, so who is Mika in Mika’s version?” It’s none other than one of Karakui’s favorite minyou artists Uchizato Mika! She shares songwriting credits for Shimauta (so yeah, it’s not a cover of The Boom’s song) and Shurayo. Be sure to add the EP to your collection.
