Memoirs of a Gaijin Playlist

“Sen no Rikyuu” by Wednesday Campanella

Thanks to JP, the playlist now has a second Japanese song to count among its ranks! JP has this reason to cite for his choice:

“Surprisingly, what drew me to this song was not the song itself but actually its music video. It revolves around Tea Ceremony, and it has all of the aspects of a proper Ceremony present. I just think its so cool how the video is able to tie together both this ancient piece of Japanese culture and the work of a contemporary J-pop star. It really shows how much influence Tea Ceremony exerts on Japanese society.”

If you would like to listen to this song or any of the other prior Songs of the Week, check out the Spotify Playlist linked above!

This song went along with this week’s post.
