Late night Tokyo interview with ethno fusion band Rain in Eden. We discussed the shamisen and underground club life in the largest city on the planet. It seems that diversity is the name of the game in Tokyo with no singular scene emerging preeminent.
From Rain in Eden’s bio page-
RainInEden is a concept project inspired by the collisions of culture and history that define the daily lives we live in Tokyo.
From the modern we take the vibrant electric sounds of synthesizers and merge them with the ancient sounds of the Silk Road.
We hear and share the voices from the edge of a modern chaotic world and listen to the wispers of a slower and more simple time.
We aspire to bring together the sounds of the old and new in a way that is all our own and to share with you the passion and confusion, contrast and clarity that is our home and inspiration.
