From osakamonaurail.com:
“After 20 years, the wheels are very much still turning on the Funkiest orchestra that Japan has to offer. Merged from a university combo to one of the world’s leading groups in the genre. The aim of the group still remains the same; that is to play Just – plain – Funk. Leader Nakata says 'We've been working hard for 20 years only to find a way to play Funky music.’”
