Andrew Galan with Okinawa Girls jam session, 19 February 2017

I’ve been jamming with Okinawa Girls for our shows at the National Folk Festival coming up in April this year. In preparation I’ve been going to their gigs as well as those of the Blade Winner (who is one half of Okinawa Girls). I’ve taken notes on the performances, on the song lyrics, as well as the vibe of what is going on. I’ve also been listening to one outtake that was sent to me by Laura Milkovits (the other half of Okinawa Girls) and discussing the songs with the band. The result is a poem called Tuesday: the Definitive Cherry Blossom, which I am still writing. Here is a small section of it recorded during our first jam session.
