Reply To: Shiori Sugaya unknown outside Japan?


Pretty sure by the look and sound she is playing the venerable Yamaha P37D. It’s a favorite of many and may be the favorite of the members here on the forum judging by how often it is discussed.

I’m not sure if she’s checking her hose connection or not? I see several strap players holding the melodica by the bass end like that. Particularly Masa Matsuda (another P37D player and quite the virtuoso.) He does it often when he’s not playing two-handed.
Is she playing her own accompaniment? It looks like the same hands and wrists.

Yes, Ms. Sugaya is quite alluring. However I caution against bare midriff playing like that as you may inadvertently draw navel lint into your melodica and block a reed tongue. ;p
