On December 31st 1993, The Boom participated in Kōhaku Uta Gassen, an exclusive show usually reserved for elite musicians. After they released Shima-uta, the group went on to perform Kaze-ni Naritai, Kaero-kana, and Tsukisaemo-nemuruyoru, but Kazufumi wanted to write more Okinawa songs, so an album comprised purely of Okinawa songs was released. Miyazawa Kazufumi released several solo albums, and composed songs for other musicians, including Akiko Yano, Kyoko Koizumi, and Rimi Natsukawa. Many people are under the misconception that Miyazawa Kazufumi's hometown is Okinawa, but this is not the case. In April 2007, Um, the first album by Miyazawa's new band Ganga Zumba, was released. A short tour in Japan by the core members of this group (Miyazawa/Takano/Tatsu/Suzano/Vachet) was planned for August/September. 2) The Boom is an american rock band from Washington, DC with jazzy sound. The revolving line-up includes Fred T.
Erskine (also Hoover, Abilene, June of 44, The Crownhate Ruin), Joe McRedmond (Hoover, The Crownhate Ruin), Booker T. Sessoms, Carlo Cennamo, Josh Larue, J. Carrier, Christopher Farrall and Stuart Fletcher. They recorded and released 2 albums: Movin' Out (1998) and Any Day of the Night (1999).
