A HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013!! 新年明けましておめでとうございます!


昨年は私、麻場 友姫胡にとって大きな変化の年でした。アルゼンチンでレコーディングを行った私の初CDアルバム「Historia del Tango…y Yo(タンゴの歴史・・・と私)」(☆バイオリン奏者&歌手として収録☆)がリリースされ、「レコード芸術」等にて絶賛して頂くなど、本当に光栄な「歴史」の年となりました。また、プロのタンゴ歌手としてオルケスタ・アストロリコ20周年記念コンサートにて歌い、同コンサートでバイオリン奏者も務めさせて頂くなど、タンゴ歌手としての一歩を踏み出しました。

A Happy New Year 2013!
The year 2012 was a ‘historical’ year for me, as I saw the release of my first CD album “Historica del Tango… y Yo (History of Tango…and I)”, and I felt very honoured to have won much critical acclaim both from Latin American and Classical Music critiques in Japan. In July last year, I made my debut as a solo singer at the 20th Anniversary Concert of Tango Orchestra Astrorico in Japan, for which I also performed as the violinist. In September, I commenced my PhD degree in ethnomusicology to undertake research on tango music at Royal Holloway University of London in the UK. In November, I was delighted to give a Tango Workshop to the 1st year undergraduate students. More exciting presentations and concerts lined up in 2013, which I will continue to communicate with you all through my Blog! May this year be full of joy and inspiration for you all!

英国から、愛を込めて〜 From England, with Love


I still can't believe that I am back in my beloved England again.
But I remember, when I first arrived in this country back when I was 13, the air was full of Autumn aroma - just like today, just like this afternoon :)

しばらく、お別れ。No.1 ~ I'll be seeing you :) No.1

Farewell for awhile :)



Saying a little farewell to the nearly three years that I spent in Japan :)
And a new beginning at the new place
