Charles de Ledesma reviews a new CD collaboration by a celebrated Japanese folk singer and an expert Hawaiian slide guitarist. It's called Nankuru Naisa. Takashi Hirayasu and Bob Brozman collaborated on last year's CD Jin Jin, which was a surprise success.

(4:00) Nankuru Naisa is on the Real Music Network label.
