Yadako's Christmas performance

It's quite a contrast, a year ago and today. A year ago, I had just finished the EXHALATION shoot and capped an unbelievable 2009. 2010 had been an incredible year as well (I am referring only to my own filmmaking career, anything outside that is a tragedy to describe), but as I am few hours away from the last day of 2010, I realize how quiet it is ending for me.

Solitude is fine, all the peace and stuff, yet to be occasionally being surrounded by like-minded people during film shoots is a warm feeling, maybe that's why I enjoy them.

Before I go for a more proper year-end blog entry, I'll just share with you all a very nice performance I had the pleasure of witnessing on Christmas day, of a lady named Yadako (you can follow her on Twitter).

Yadako's CD

I was heading off for dinner when I saw her drawing a crowd, she had a nice voice, so it would be a travesty, to not film it.


There are two songs in my video, the first one "mizu tama" 水玉, I can't identify the second.

I just found on her blog that she has an actual music video for the song, I believe it was also shot with a Canon DSLR camera, either a 7D like mine, or a 5D mark 2. Pretty Misia-ish, her performance.
