Music to the Ears

Here’s a lovely, upbeat song perfect for a chirpy Sunday morning— 大丈夫 (Daijyoubu) from Monkey Majik. For those new to this awesome group, Monkey Majik comprises 4 members— guitarists/vocalists Maynard Plant and his brother Blaise, who sing in a mixture of Japanese and English, drummer Takuya “tax” Kikuchi and bassist DICK.

Maynard and Blaise originally come from Ottawa, with Maynard going over to Aomori-ken as an ALT under the JET Programme from 1997-2000. Formed in 2000, this band has made it big in Japan, performing at various functions including the recent MTV Aid Japan 2011 and have been chosen as “Goodwill Ambassadors” for the 80th anniversary of Japanese-Canadian relations.
