Yamasuki - Yama Yama

'Le Monde Fabuleux Des Yamasuki' was released as a pseudo-Japanese concept album in 1971 by French pop composers Jean Kluger and Daniel Vangarde as the Yamasuki Singers. The duo learnt Japanese before recording began and even enlisted the aid of a renowned black-belt Judo master to introduce the tracks, which were all sung in Japanese by a school choir. The result is theatrical, epic, freaky and exotic J-pop that absolutely defies categorisation. It's fantastic to think that the album was so avant-garde its acquired cult status and still resonates with music lovers today, being a highly sought-after source of bass and drum samples.

Tokyo based Animation Filmmaker & Mask Designer Shishi Yamazaki decided to create this beautiful music video for the track 'Yama Yama' in her own gorgeous signature style to introduce this wonderful music to a whole new audience.
