about

"pleasantly confusing, emotional and mysterious." IGLOO MAG

An encounter with another culture is always full of surprises, misunderstandings, joys and difficulties. In China Life Japanese musician Masayoshi Miyazaki explores the highs, lows and heartaches of his five years in China. At the centre of the album is the pandemic and the profound impact of its restrictions on travel. During this period Masayoshi's son was born in Japan, and as he waited to be able to meet him, and to be reunited with his wife, he turned to music as refuge, solace and escape.

"I found his amazing album to be wonderfully expansive and a genuine thrill to master such a deeply immersive set of tracks." -- Simon Scott.
