About Ongaku Sessions
Ongaku (音楽) = “music” or “sound” in Japanese.
Ongaku Sessions is an hour of music designed for concentrated listening in a comfortable setting.
Host Mark Duggan presents two distinct sets linked by a common thread, such as era, genre, topic, or feeling.
Audio fidelity is paramount. This music demands generous volume settings on a quality hi-fi system or set of headphones.
Ongaku Sessions is inspired by kissa, cafes in Japan that play jazz and other music in a focused listening environment.
