Yula Yayio is an enigma, no one seems
to get her records out of Japan except brief, but inspired
segments on compilations. Her website now lists
a few mp3s for download. Some of vapid j-pop and
others worldy inspired vocal arrangements that remind
of Middle Eastern vocal arrangements and African Choral
groups. Call and response with her self, Anne Briggs like
solo pieces all add up to an amazingly eclectic body
of music all pointing towards one rather cute mouth.
Comparable to Julie Tippets or Maggie Nicols.
