Mama Guitar’s 3rd album – arriving nearly ten years since their last album – is being released by zelone records!

Formed in the late 90s,  girls’ band Mama Guitar took the world by storm with their perfect early 60s sensibilities and cute chorus work. With overseas releases and tours in countries such as Korea, Germany and more, the group earned fans not only in Japan, but all around the world. After playing their last concert in 2006, the group receded from the scene and was quiet for some time. But after nearly a year of recording, they have completed their 3rd album – “MAMA GUITAR SINGS MAMA GUITAR” – their first album in nearly ten years!
And it seems the album features guest musician Shintaro Sakamoto!
For 13 songs, 34 minutes and 30 seconds, please enjoy the new world of MAMA GUITAR.It seems it will be available in store Friday, February 24th!!!
