Product Description

Farmers planting crops, fishermen pulling in nets, festivals, lullabies are just some of the themes of Japanese minyo or folk songs. Any rural area in Japan has its own repertroire which differ greatly to one another, as each community was relatively isolated for many years during the feudal period. The twenty tracks on this CD range from Hokkaido in the far north to Kagoahima in the deep south. These include Soran Bushi, Esashi Oiwake, Tsugaru Jonkara Bushi, Otachizake, Hanagasa Ondo, Mogamigawa Funauta, Kiso Bushi and Kuroda Bushi.
