About

As part of our 25th Anniversary celebration, Akira Tana & Otonowa also celebrate their 4th recording release. Their first was released in 2013 when the group was formed to play for communities in Tohoku (Northern Japan) that were devastated by the 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami that claimed over 20,000 lives.
