Healthy life….

 

 

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

Recently I was slacked about everything . Especially about the health .  

My schedules were so hectic , so I couldn’t afford to think of myself . My life style was not good these days . Like  I take 3 cup of coffee a day (for me it’s not good thing, which means I count on coffee too much without sleeping ), I eat only doughnut a day(That was only sometime tho. this i.e. because no time.) , something like that.

So , I thought I should take foods which can make my body better !!! I meant , not only snacks lol

Today’s Juna ’s Kitchen !!

・Stir fried meat and vegetables (potato , onions ,beans )

・Miso soup which has to-fu and seaweed 

I can cook only  something easy when I have lots on my plate….  

It was still nice ; ) I used olive oil / pepper salt  as seasonings .

I usually upload my cooking picts on my instagram’s story . Check it out ;  )

 

 

 

! Juna Serita’s instagram !

 

In July , in my opinion  my schedules were kinda packed but seems like my schedules are totally full this month !!!

The reason is that I’m gonna perform with new artist that I haven’t played with ever .

 

Anyway  I have to keep to have my good motivation whole month !!! Because I wanna play better !!

 See ya!!!!

Katsuo’s Kitchen @ RPM in Shimokitazawa, Tokyo

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

Today I had a jam session at Shimokitazawa RPM as a host member !

member:

Dr. Darryl Baker / Ba.Juna Serita / Gt. Ryan Carter / 

 

 

Many players came there, that was so variety . Some people played their original songs, some people played old school , some people played just improvisation , etc…

 

And my friend , percussionist Earl Spencer also came there.  This is my first time to play the conga!!!!

https://www.facebook.com/junaserita/videos/vb.315809648563112/1295275300616537/?type=2&theater&notif_t=page_post_reaction&notif_id=1523679926450247

Wooooow…. It’s exciting but  my hands feel soooooo painful ; ( !!! His sounds are big and fat ! I couldn’t believe it is the same instrument!   He is the greatest musician!!

 

When I play the instrument except  bass guitar , I don’t have to feel nervous at all. So I can enjoy it .

interesting

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

I talked to my mom on the phone  for the first time in a while.

She was worried whether I’m still alive or not  because I didn’t post on my SNS lately .

I’m trying to post almost everyday but sometimes I feel it’s a pain in the ass . Kind of break time.

Don’t worry, mom and dad .   I’m fine. ; )

 

There is a spot I wanted to check out at Roppongi Icchome station.  When I passed  through in front of the restaurant, I felt it looks yummy and healthy (compared with other fast food. )  It is called the 3rd Burger.

I ordered 3rd Burger .  The reason is that it might be crime to fame since the naming

Let’s eat with green smoothy !

It has wasabi more that I expected .  Maybe many Japanese people like this style .

It was nice, but I’m so missing American thick hamburger …

 

 

BTW I ran into a percussionist Earl Spencer near by Shibuya station. We’ve never met but know each other because we have many common music friends .

Actually that’s our first meeting, funny. 😂

We invited gigs each other again and again; however that didn’t work well .

When he talked to me on the road,I was wondering why he could recognize I’m Juna in spite of the fact that we’ve never met in person. According to him, I have an aura .😂(!?)

Interesting.  ; )

I uploaded new video

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

I uploaded new video on my youtube channel.

That is a digest video that I played in California  . (Anaheim & Los Angels)

Unfortunately , I don’t have all  of  my performance video. So not good enough at all though .

Please check it out  and puts some comments if you want ; )

 

 

 

 

By the way  , recently  I actually talking with a person to do something together ; )  Maybe some people can guess who the person is if they check my SNS often. : )

I was thinking I wanna play and create something with her when I listened to her songs  for the first time.

She is kickass .    I hope I will show my fans the collaboration ASAP ♪

 

I tried to wink but that was difficult… lol

Strange .

 

See ya!!

Lab.@Higashi-Shinjuku Circle

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

Today the piano trio band called Lab. had a gig at Higashi-Shinjuku Circle in Tokyo!

 

We play instrumental music.  I think people call our music  jazz-fusion.

I really appreciate that many people come to see our performance in spite of the fact that we don’t have any promotion video.

We performed about 2 hours.

SET LIST

1Origin

2Cambria

3Hallucigenia

4Space Battle Ship

5Cenozoic

 

6Natural Selection

7Less of heterozygosity

8Paralog

9Genetic Drift

10Evolution

encore:Tell me a  bedtime story (cover)

 

Our music is kinda session, so it changes every time.

Which means you can enjoy every time even if we’ll play the same songs!

Anyway the most songs are irregular metro, like 9/8 , 5/4 . 7/8, and so on … For me, it is  still so difficult .

The drummer Adam MG and the keyboard player Kodai Taniguchi are very good at rhythm .  According to them, they feel 4/4 is difficult…lol

 

Out next gig is May 20th.   And April 24th, we’ll have a jam session as host members at Ikebukuro SOMETHIN’ jazz club B2.

Let’s jam with us ; )!

 

By the way

I thought I really want 6 strings bass guitar….

 

Do you think I can handle that?

 

 

 

See ya!!
