Shiina Ringo, Japanese Pop Singer

Completely loving the musical styles of Japanese pop singer and multi-instrumentalist Shiina Ringo, wanted to share some videos of her stuff that are all really varied. enjoy! ppp

Singing some more here with Soil&”Pimp”Sessions a jazz/rock/fusion duo

Here she is doing something a little more toned-down with her orchestra

Shiina also founded the band Tokyo Jihen, check them out in this vid.

and something a bit more humorous…

Love the dancing in these vids, thought you’d might like it too! Lighting Hopkins is one of the last truly great blues musicians in my book (before butt-rock blues came along and ruined all the interesting rhythms and syncopations, I hate guitar solos), this video comes from a documentary about Lighting entitled “The Blues According to Lighting Hopkins” it’s pretty cool to see him in his prime playing at a small party with two amazing dancing girls.

Bo Diddley is probably one of my favorite rock’n rollers along with Chuck Berry and Little Richard, he pioneered a really unique guitar sound and rhythmic drive, he has a great back up dancer and guitarist nicknamed “the Duchess” you can see them move in this video here.

Just scratching the surface… it’s always time for a Soul Train line!

Groove…
