oto nova Japan 音の波: Mari* with Koichi Sakai

07.10.19

Mari* is Worldwide FM’s Senior Producer and Gilles Peterson’s longtime radio collaborator, and every month presents a two hour show called ‘Oto Nova Japan’ introducing a new wave of artists and music coming out of Japan.

On this edition, Mari* is joined by London based producer and DJ Koichi Sakai, who is well-known in London music circles and co-founder of the legendary Afro-beat Vibration nights alongside Dele Sosimi. The show explores his new release and collaboration with Ghanaian percussionist and singer Afla Sackey (Afrik Bawantu), where Koichi mixed African percussion instruments and themes with synths and drum machines. Mari is curious to chat about how he has established his role in the music scene after moving from Japan.
