I'm very excited and proud to announce the debut release for my Japanese Gypsy-jazz project, titled "Sakura Swing".
It's available on major streaming platforms.

A little bit about the track:
Sakura Swing is a reinterpretation of the classic Japanese song, "Sakura Sakura", in the Gypsy-jazz style.
It combines the introspective melody with the red-hot swing of Django Reinhardt, creating a bold new sound and direction.
Sakura means cherry blossoms in Japanese. The cherry blossom is one of the most important flower in Japanese culture and symbolizes ephemeral beauty. It's a reminder to us of the fragility of life. It also signals the arrival of spring, and many important traditions surrounding the season such as graduation and hanami (picnic under cherry blossoms).
