水曜日のカンパネラ

水曜日のカンパネラ or Wednesday Campanella is a Japanese music group. I’m listening to their Album Galapagos (2018) lately. Have to say SUPERMAN was still a better album, but this Album isn’t bad either.

Love this album cover so much by the way!

Would like to see them playing live one day. Come to Europe!

Some picks:

  1. Picasso

2. かぐや姫

Hope you like this kind of music too!

Have a good day!

Nowadays the central JR station of Fukuoka and the port of Fukuoka still use the name of Hakata.
