グナワ文化とブルースに精通し独自の融合を行うThe Firefly Clan(津嶋利仁)と、世界的コンピ「Red Hot + Rio 2」への参加(Atom™ + Toshiyuki Yasuda Feat. Fernanda Takai + Moreno Veloso)などをキャリアハイライトの一つとしながら音楽と社会の新しい関わりを模索し続ける安田寿之は、信頼し合う仲間として共演を行ってきた。今作は、The Firefly Clanが沖縄の美しい宿somosで行ったギターと歌の録音をベースに、安田寿之がフェルトピアノをダビングし仕上げる連作の第三弾。
旅先の炎天下にて目的地が見つからないというハプニングに遭遇することにより心が通い出す親子の歌。「Cedar」「Sweetness Comes」(The Firefly Clan)、Where Are You Now(The Firefly Clan, 安田寿之)に続く、Barbara Van Diestによる詩に手を加えず歌を載せたコラボレーション最新作。

Well versed in Gnawa music and blues, The Firefly Clan (a.k.a Toshihito Tsushima) has been pursuing a unique style of fusion music. Toshiyuki Yasuda, with his participation in the global compilation "Red Hot + Rio 2" (Atom™ + Toshiyuki Yasuda Feat. Fernanda Takai + Moreno Veloso) as one of the highlights of his career, continues to explore new relationships between music and society. The Firefly Clan and Toshiyuki Yasuda have been collaborating and occasionally performing together as trusted partners in music. The single is the third in a series of works in which Toshiyuki Yasuda dubs felt piano based on guitar and vocal recordings made by The Firefly Clan at the beautiful inn in Okinawa "somos".
A song about unexpected events connecting one’s soul to another. In this case it is between a parent and child. “Little Foot” is the latest collaboration with Barbara Van Diest’s poetry and The Firefly Clan’s spontaneous song writing style.
