Cho Kayou Live Concert

Cho Kayou (超歌謡) is a term which Makigami used for his way of interpretation of Japanese songs. In "Minzoku No Saiten" (1982) and "Koroshi No Blues" (1992), Makigami covered popular (and obscure) Japanese songs, most of them are from 1950-1970. There are so many "Japanese songbook" albums in the market, but those two albums are clearly stood out, for the songs' selection (which really reflected his eclectism), and its unique and fresh approach for each song.

In the past, Makigami did a series of live concert under the Cho Kayou concept, which he called Cho Kayou Live. And the latest date is coming on next month. Recently he did not Cho Kayou thing so frequently, and this time play with Hikashu people, so this is a truly rare treat. Should not to be missed.
