"Kanryu: Debut Live in Korea 2006 sees Mikami reunited with the masterful Korean komungo player and vocalist Shin Heyon, who played together with him on the Fukon group release. Eight years on that epochal cross-cultural meeting, Mikami journeyed to Seoul for two nights of concerts. Shin's stringed komungo brings a thick and knotted presence to the overall sound, while Seoul resident Japanese musician Sato Yukie tosses in swirling metallic blats of electronics and guitar. There's a gorgeous languorous, slow-motion flow to the proceedings as Mikami revisits classics from the full span of his back catalog, including a spine-tingling version of 'Kid with a Gun,' his once-banned ode to teen-murderer-turned-death-row poet Nagayama Norio. Limited edition of 1000 in gatefold digipack."
