I just discovered an amazing group called Little Dragon. I was surfing YouTube, listening to POGO and I saw a video on the sidebar called Constant Surprises. I wondered if it was a new POGO video that I'd missed. I pressed play...and...WHY DID I HEAR A BLACK WOMAN'S VOICE COMING FROM A JAPANESE WOMAN??? So I'm staring at the video and this Japanese woman with a slight Asian accent is also sounding like a straight up soul singer!
I read some of the comments and they were calling her the Japanese Erykah Badu. Alot of you know that I love music that has a fusion of hip hop/soul and Asian. I mean, that is just my thing so I was like...YIPPEE! I went searching for more music by the group and discovered an endless supply of Little Dragon that I can explore at my leisure. Thank you Thank you, YouTube!!!
Little Dragon is a Swedish group made up of school friends. Lead Singer Yukimi Nagano, who is Japanese/Swedish, was given the nick name Little Dragon when she would become frustrated and angry during rehearsals that didn't go right. The group adopted the name.
