Song Production Information
On the day I had a meeting with dj TAKA after 4-5 years, I somehow had an ethno mood that morning, so I asked him "how about India", and he said "OK", and that's how I created this song.
Just before I started speaking, KAJIL quickly created the track and named it "Fly away to India" before I changed my mind, which she said was "easy to understand", and added cute lyrics to it.
I first heard Indian music when I was around 7-8 years old. I returned home from school and I turned on a channel, I think it was NHK, and there were three Indians performing.
I thought they were the three men from a curry package while watching it.
They were just sitting on the stage without moving much, but this was a very hot performance, and I became completely obsessed with the players' ecstatic facial expressions as time passed while thinking "this is somewhat amazing".
Among them, I was very addicted to a man who played a Japanese leather-like drum held between his knees, and when he started swaying with his mouth open, I expectedly became scared since I was still a child.
And at that moment, he slowly drooled from his mouth!
"Does it feel good?!"
NHK often showed these programs during the midday.
I learned about the existence of a world that my piano teacher never showed me.
.. Yes, it's from an educational program. It was a lot later when I found out that the drum was called tabla.
That's why this song features the TABLA!
I'd be happy if you could play this song with that-ish feeling.
As a side note, my Indian friend told me that "India is a caste country, so there are differences in social status just by the instruments used by the band".
So it seems that the sitar has a higher status than the Tabla.
"Isn't it just its shape?" "Their fees are different". Really?
Video Production Information
Oh, India. I can hear the sounds of India flowing form somewhere.
While I was busy during production, I heard a refreshing~ song playing from the arcade cabinet.
I suddenly looked at the cloudy sunset from the window of Roppongi Hills.
Oh, India. I also fly away.
Oh, India. My mind is also flying today.
Oh, India. It's fine even if I don't finish work.
Oh, India. OK, I'm also going on a trip.
This is a healing song to listen to when you're tired from work. This song is still a matter of taste.
As expected from the great Ueno. Alpha waves seem to appear.
It's also coming out from my right brain. Pihyala Pihyala fin fin♪ India~♪
This image feels shiny. I feel like I went on a trip to India.
Such feeling. In an Indian-styled coffee shop at a school festival....... chai.
