74 year old guitarist Hatsuneya Ishiwaka is one of the eldest musicians in the current Kawachi Ondo scene. He's known for playing his guiitar like an old blues guitarist, with his own unique take on Kawachi ondo and Tawamure Uta. On this monumental album he is ably supported by singers and musicians from Hatsuneya Shachu, one of the oldest schools of Kawachi Ondo, chindon group, Chindon Tsushinsha, and self styled 'Off Note All Stars', the brilliant and innovative musicians who have played on host of the distinctive Off Note label releases. Quite simply, brilliant.
