Rinken Band re-record all their best known "Eisa" songs. So, there's plenty of drumming, and chants of "Haieeeya, Haieeeyah, Haieeeya Sah Sah". With just sanshin, drumming and vocals, and without the curse of the synthesizer on some of the originals, Rinken Band have never sounded better. Eisa is the summer festival in Okinawa, where dancers and drummers take to the streets, egged on by the incessant chant of the crowd. Uniquely Okinawan, vibrant, a living, evolving tradition, and this CD gives you a real taste.
