The other day I was out taking photos with Shou Farn around Melbourne. As we walked down Bourke Street (a major shopping strip in the city), we saw this interesting Japanese busker singing some English songs. The amazing thing was, apart from singing, he managed to play guitar, harmonica and beat a little "foot drum" all at the same time. I was so engrossed in the refreshing, soulful renditions of his original songs, and I am pretty sure the large crowd felt the same too. It was interesting that while he sang in near-perfect US accent; at the end of every song, he actually talked to his spectators with a thick Japanese accent.
After fishing around the Internet, I learned that this guy is called George Kamikawa, and he's quite famous in Melbourne. He plays in some bars around Melbourne as well as busking on Bourke Street regularly. (How I managed to miss him all the while I don't know) He also has a pretty fancy personal website.

That was aBsolutely blurrdy brilliant, to quote Amanda Holden.
