  1. Hello, Raffaele, and welcome to the fold! :) Always wonderful to have new people who are willing to participate in this community we're trying to foster by making their presence known by contributing a guest mix... I hope this isn't the last we'll be hearing from you, or hearing something you've compiled together, rather...! But it's a terrific first impression you've left us with! I love pretty much everything about this mix... The strongly communicated the theme, the cover art you chose, which is almost like a representation of the music itself... Strange, which these songs are, at least to me! They're exotic for the fact I haven't had the chance to listen to much of this sort of thing... Strange, but quite intriguing, too :) Which these songs also are. Beautiful, and full of emotion, and really quite a fascinating listen. It was definitely a pleasure to get an introduction in bulk to this style with your mix, so... Thank you very much for sharing your passion for Old Time Japanese Music with all of us ♥
