It's often portrayed how Japanese folk (minyo) was mixed with various western music and rhythms following the second world war. However even before the Showa period in 1926, Japanese minyo (ryo) was being mixed with foxtrot, blues, tango and rumba. These songs were popular in dance halls, where these familiar folk tunes took on a new lease of life.
