Yamasuki Singers sing “Kono Samourai”
The record this song is taken from is amazing! An educational bubblegum multicultural psych-rock opera with lavish choral arrangements and triple-fat beats and basslines is the only way to describe this 1971 French/Japanese choreography LP which was designed to bridge the European and Eastern-Asian culture gap through the power of deep and funky music.
If you’ve ever heard “The Healer” from Erykah Badu's New Amerykah Part One, then you’ll recognize the sample right away.
We don’t need European fairy tales retold with dark-skinned characters
We need non-European fairy tales being told
Race-bending isn’t the answer here
Realizing that there are children who have non-European heritages and cultures who need their own stories being given representation is the answer
see that girl you just called a bitch? she didn’t hear you say it louder
