Another chance to hear Gilles Peterson travelling back to Japan to find how Japanese youth culture has responded to their country's biggest natural disaster since records began.

Gilles Peterson visits Tokyo to discover how the youth of Japan are responding following the devastating earthquake and tsunami.

He spends time in Tokyo and speaks to local musicians including Goth Trad and Anchorsong. He also finds out about the local clubbing culture; tries some local food; goes record shopping; learns about a controversial piece of art that was a reaction to the disaster; and discovers why a manga comic was banned. Plus, we catch up with musicians vistiting Toyko - Sinden, SBRTRK and Robert Glasper; and find out about the battle between K-Pop & J-Pop.

Gilles also visits the Sendai region, which was near the epicentre of the earthquake in March 2011 and badly hit by the tsunami which followed, seeing the level of devastation for himself.
