Japanese VS Western music (94)

i prefer japanese style hip-hop (ex/ nujabes) compared to the more machismo-esque hip-hop/rap of western culture. It might be just because of the artist and my limited exposure to japanese hip-hop, but it feels much more relaxed and feminine(and much more in-common with jazz)than western-style hip-hop. I also tend to prefer japanese jazz over western jazz. When I listen to coltrane or benny goodman compared to yoko kanno's jazz band and the hiroshimas, it is much more mellow i believe

but then again, i really hate japanese rock
