AWESOME: Cool video mashup of “One Love” & Ue O Muite Arukou” (“Sukiyaki” to some) by Tohoku musicians

I find this magically powerful. It’s a sweet rendition of one of my all-time favorite songs (and one I was just playing last night on the guitar). And it’s also an expression of hope, community and rebirth from musicians in the Tohoku region of NE Japan, set amidst the cleaned-up but still devastated area hammered by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.

    Fantastic rendition!!! That melody is so haunting, and the concept is just wonderful. Mash-ups rule!

    Being a guitar player and songwriter myself, I can really appreciate the beauty on display here. It always warms my heart when I see people collaborating on an amazing song such as this =)
