Product Description

Compiled by Paul Fisher. 'Japan is no longer perceived as home to the worst excesses of idol pop or inaccesible traditional music. In truth, Japanese musicians have for years been skilful at blending the traditional with the pop and creating some of the world's craziest concoctions. The Rough Guide to the Music of Japan unites ancient gagaku to today's hottest roots acts, mixed with quintessential enka and post-war boogie-woogie; a collection to blow away any lingering preconceptions.'
