gFujin Raijin is a stupendous, almost terrifying record that shatters any and all expectations during its six tracksc If any music has the ability to change onefs life, this is it, making Fujin Raijin a powerful experience in which to revel.h \ Budd Kopman, All About Jazz

After studying jazz and classical music, Fujii became interested in Min-Yoh, which means folk music in Japanese. Played by amateurs, collectively arranged by the performers, and beautiful in its simplicity, Min-Yoh held a power unlike any music she had studied and played before. Fujii gathered together musicians who understood the powerful simplicity and collective spirit of folk music to play her own, personal Min-Yoh.

Min-Yoh has released two CDs, gFuji Raijinh(2007) and "Watershed" (2011).
