I was on an errand walking up Pitt St Mall yesterday when I saw an Asian with a guitar case on his shoulder, pulling an amplifier behind him on a trolley. What the hell, I’ve got five minutes. I introduced myself as a fellow busker. It turns out Yuta was from Yokohama and played jazz fingerstyle (no singing though). In fact he’d actually been busking earlier in the main spot at the Westfield entrance. Obviously he was not afraid of performing for the day crowd. I thought it might be a bit rude to ask how much he’d made and didn’t want to hold him up from setting up. Maybe I’ll see him play next time and get to use a bit more of my Japanese.
