To All Relations
When Nobuko Miyamoto began writing music 35 years ago, there was virtually no such thing as Asian American music. In 1973, together with Chris Iijima and Charlie Chin, 'A Grain of Sand,' she created the first album of Asian American music. This is her second solo project, a beautiful presentation of socially and spiritually conscious music based on her personal experiences. The title cut is inspired by the Native American Greeting, Mitakuye Oyasin, 'To All Relations' celebrating our connection to each other as well as all living beings. Her music continues to inspire listeners with it's positive message and personal stories.
