Rock Out with Quarantine Collaborations

J-Pop Music Video Stay Home

Like many of us around the world, Japanese singer-songwriter Gen Hoshino is social distancing at home as Tokyo braces for the second wave of coronavirus outbreaks. While in self-quarantine, he wrote a new song titled “Uchide Odorou / Dancing on the Inside” and uploaded the track to YouTube, inviting anyone who wishes to collaborate with him by creating their own arrangements or accompaniments. And the remixes are coming in from all kinds of people, from amateurs to professional musicians. Ever the uber-talented Naomi Watanabe sent in her performance on Instagram. And even a full orchestra! That must've been one fun Zoom chat!
