Japal Duo is a world music project in Berlin.

“Japal” is a coined word combined “Japan” and “Palestine” which is their background.

The members of “Japal” are:

  • Shingo Masuda (qanun, from Japan),
  • Noriko Okamoto (contrabass, from Japan)

They met in Berlin and established as a band in the end of 2018.

Shingo have performed together for a few oriental musical groups, for example they played with a Syrian singer “Lubana Al Quntar” from USA for Arab Song Jam.

And then they met up to establish a new band.

They have different musical background each one, for example Arabic music, Japanese music, classical music, Turkish music and jazz etc. They are making their music by incorporating those elements.

JAPAL stands for the fusion of music from all over the world by a few instruments.

Winner of the creole contest 2019 at WDK Berlin!
