Music Hall: Orange Pekoe


Orange Pekoe is a popular Japanese jazz duo. Kazuma Fujimoto and Tomoko Nagashima began their collaboration in 1998, while graduate students at Osaka’s Kwansei Gakuin University. They gained popularity in the Kansai region of Japan by playing cafes and other small venues and eventually got picked up by a major label (BGM Japan), which released their first hit in 2002, called “Happy Valley.”

Their music is best appreciated when accompanied by the drinking of hot orange pekoe tea.
