Welcome to episode 79 of Holly Jolly X’masu! In this episode, I’ll be talking about Lisa Ono’s album, “Boas Festas,” from 2000.

Over the past three years, I’ve pointed out multiple times that I don’t speak Japanese and have, therefore, apologized for some of my pronunciations. This time, I have to point out that I don’t speak Portuguese, so if my friend Ernesto is listening, I’m sorry for mangling some of the names. That said, I can’t overstate how thrilled I was to discover Lisa Ono’s music. Her Christmas CD’s have become two of my favorites and are now permanent parts of my regular Christmas music playlist.

I hope you enjoyed this first episode about Lisa Ono. It’s been hectic the past few months and I’m way behind schedule, but I’ll be getting the next one out as soon as I can. Be sure to tune back in as I wrap up my discussion about Lisa Ono’s life and career, and give a brief history about Bossa Nova music in general..

As always, any feedback on this episode would be appreciated. If have any suggestions, or if you’d like to recommend a song or album for a future episode, drop me a line and let me know.

Remember, I’ve added a button to my Ko-fi page. If you’d like to support me one cup of coffee at a time, a donation is only $3. I’ve also opened a Redbubble store. I only have a couple designs up, but keep an eye on it as I’ll be trying to add more. Half of any proceeds or donations received will be donated to support the people of Ukraine, while the rest will be used to purchase new Japanese Christmas music to review for future episodes. You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And if you get a chance, leave me a review on iTunes. Thanks!
