Product Description

The group that have probably done more to popularize Okinawan music- although they are not from Okinawa- on an album of mostly re-recorded versions of their best known Okinawan influenced songs. Arguably the originals are superior (Shima Uta) but occasionally better (Hyakuman Tsubu no Namida) Elsewhere original versions are included, and even material from Miyazawa's solo albums, that had an Okinawa connection. Overall, good introduction to one of the best sides of the Boom's work, and a success that helped change Japanese perceptions of Okinawa.
