The Japanese Love Those Heilege Nigunim
Ladaat reports that the new CD by Moshe P. Weisblum called "Heartfelt Melodies" in English and "Heilege Nigunim" in Hebrew/Yiddish is selling well in Japan. Amazon in Japan reported success in selling it, and the Japanese are dubbing it as "calming music that lifts the soul".
Who knew about this untapped market? Next, we'll hear about Avraham Fried doing a concert in Tokyo, I guess.
Maybe it's something deep in their souls.
