8-Bit

September 18, 2008

Check out this cool music video for a song called Yosawya-san by Japanese electropop group Omodaka from Far East Recordings.


This fun song featuring a dancing 8-bit skeleton is actually a remix of what is believed to be the oldest Japanese song in the world. The song is called Kokoriko Bushi, meaning tune of a kokoriko—an ancient string instrument. The artist is Japanese electro-pop collective Omodaka of Far East Recordings; the animation is directed by Teppei Maki.
