Akane Murayoshi releases debut album!

A song that I completely fell in love with in 2006 also happened to be the Miuta Taishou Grand Prix winner of that same year: “Miyarabi nu Hana.” The song—sung by upcoming utasaa Akane Murayoshi of Kumejima Town—also performed at the Okinawan Festival in Hawaii in 2006. The album, unsurprisingly titled “Miyarabi nu Hana,” was released yesterday (9/13) and contains a total of 14 tracks and will retail for ¥2,100. The CD is produced by Yoshimi Aragaki who also penned the title track and the album comes with two versions of the song: an album version and a sanshin version.
