Christmas is nearly upon us, and so too the annual event that is the Akira The Don Lofi Christmas album… with that a mere few weeks a way, first, a special treat in the shape of a remastered version of one of the most cherished moments from last year's Youtube-only vocal-infused version of LOFI CHRISTMAS IV (https://linktw.in/mkZMSB), in which we set Paul Harvey’s immortal story of The Man And The Birds to music… here given a lush remaster and some extra-Christmassy bonus piano and bells, THE MAN AND THE BIRDS is now available for you to enjoy as a stand alone single on your DSP of choice, and for you to download and own forever. Disfruta! (https://go.meaningwave.com/THEMANANDTHEBIRDS)

Akira The Don Returns To Play Main Stage AT DECENTRALAND METAVERSE MUSIC FESTIVAL 2022!
After the epic glory and wonder that was last year's Decentraland Metaverse Music Festival, we’re returning for the '22 edition, which this WIRED article (https://wired.me/culture/decentraland-metaverse-music-festival-2022) tells us is "bigger and better", and I can confirm that to be a galactean UNDERSTATEMENT!
"The music festival grounds are big enough to get lost in and only just find your way home, like in real life," says Creative Director Sam Hamilton. "For a lot of people in the community, the stand out show was Akira the Don, who’s back this year performing on the main stage.”
Indeed, your friendly neighborhood Akira The Don will be headlining the main stage on Saturday night, and its just been confirmed that the immortal Björk will be making her metaverse debut on Sunday, so even if that were all that was occurring it would be the event of the year... AND THAT'S NOT EVEN ALL THAT'S OCCURRING!
