The title track “Sunday in Kyoto” tells the story of a Cajun musician who lives with his Japanese partner in Kyoto, enjoying Sunday afternoon jam sessions with friends from far away places. The other songs on the album will give you the chance to meet Joe’s mother who snorts like a hog, to fall in love with little Miss Adèle who calls herself Hello and to bump into a rooster who serves eggs for breakfast… It’s zany-crazy and you’ll love it!
