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.

More listening awaits. Explore Mark’s other programs Box of Visions and Jazz Visions.
