The Dragonfly Lands in China or 世界中のみんなトンボを歌いましょう



I Skyp’d with my friend Ji this afternoon. It had been a long time since we last talked, so we had a nice conversation about our recent experiences. Ji and I both really love music, so usually when we get together we end up chatting about music. This time we talked about “Tonbo.” When Ji was 19, he moved to Canada to study. I met him about four years ago at the company we both once worked for. Anyhow, when Ji was a junior high school student in China he heard “Tonbo” for the first time. But, the song was not Nagabuchi Tsuyoshi’s version, it was a cover by a Chinese band. I find this very interesting. Someday, I want to perform this song in Chinese, Japanese, and English with Ji.

If you’d like, please listen to the Chinese version below.
