Heya, im not sure where this belongs, but I figured this was a good place to start.
Does anyone know how I could get in contact with Yoko Kanno, in regards to gaining permission to use one of her songs in a student short-film
not the right place to ask, but i'm not really sure where it would have been. probably the pit.

i did the legwork for you, now you just have to just have to hope that someone that knows english will read you email.

go here: http://www.kannoyoko.net/
it is the last link on the right.

you may want to run things through the google translator to have a rough idea of what is being said. the first blank field is name and the first set of bubbles/tick boxes is your gender...
