First album from group who describe themselves as playing neo minyo, or new style folk songs. Features the singer and shamisen player Kaori Kitsu, sister of Shigeri, together with Kinsui Sato (shakuhachi, shinobue), Mitsuru Uchida (guitar), Rikiya Nakamura (piano) and Masatoshi Kainuma (percussion). Rather wonderful mix of sounds with superb vocals.
