Alfredo Casero, an Argentine musician, actor and comedian, recorded “Shima Uta” in 2002, the first single from his album, Casaerius. His cover of the song written and recorded by Miyazawa Kazufumi in 1993, who was with the band “The Boom” at the time, became a huge hit in Argentina, where it was chosen as the anthem for the national football team to represent the country at the 2002 FIFA World Cup in South Korea and Japan. In this video, both Casero and Miyazawa share the stage at the 2002 FIFA World Cup in Japan (Wikipedia).

Casero, Miyazawa, and Japanese-Argentine folk singer Claudia Oshiro performed “Shima Uta” at the 53rd Kōhaku Uta Gassen on New Year’s Eve 2002.I’m not sure if this photo and the one below are from that particular performance.
