Quite a project this one. Kisho Tosya is a yokobue (flute) player, who apart from being an acclaimed traditional musician, likes to push the boundaries by playing with DJ Kentaro among others. On this album Tosya has written the music, with lyrics by Takashi Matsumoto, once of the group Happy End, and one of the most celebrated lyricists of Japanese pop music. There are some readings too by Kabuki actor Somegoro Ichikawa and actress Mayumi Wakayama. The music though is the main thing, performed by several great traditional musicians such as Hozan Yamamoto and Eitetsu Hayashi and nagauta singer Tosei Kineya.
