Cowboy Bebop - The Real Folk Blues - Special COVID-19 Charity Arrangement

Anime gives back! In collaboration with Sunrise and Funimation, we are thrilled to share this star-studded tribute to the gorgeous music of Yoko Kanno and Cowboy Bebop to benefit COVID-19 Relief. Featuring over forty special guests including Yoko Kanno herself and the Seatbelts, original cast members, and a veritable who's-who of the modern game and anime industries, ALL PROCEEDS will be donated to the CDC Foundation and Doctors without Borders (MSF) in support of the fight against COVID-19.
