TATSUKO★88 copy

TASUKO was born in 1928 and turned 88 this year. Last year she moved into a housing constructed after a disaster. Since the time she lived in a temporary housing, she attends the cozy reunions in her neighbourhood, where desserts are served and to which she brings her homemade “tsukemono”, a kind of japanese pickles. One day she started telling me about her life and it took her several days to reach the end of her story. In the past, she had had the idea of writing her autobiography, but people had told her that “nobody’s going to want to read that”. That’s why I proposed her to write a Rap Song about it. She said “I know what a wrap is, but a RAP?” And this is how this idea was born.
