Nenes performed at the 1998 WOMAD festival in the UK, and took part in the subsequent Real World recording week.

On her first solo album, Yoshida takes a more simple and traditional approach than the 'Uchina pop' of Nenes. This recent composition features Nenes mentor Sadao China on sanshin and also ryukin, the Okinawan koto or harp. Read more on Last.fm.
