Second volume by percussionist Toshi Tsuchitori of the music of balladeer and political activist Azembo Soeda (1872-1944) and his son Chido Soeda (1902-1980). Azembo was one of Japan's first mainstream entertainers, popular among the masses in pre-war Japan. He created enka songs, sung by farmers and factory workers alike, expressing thoughts and commenting about the issues of the day such as class conflict and racial attitudes to other Asian countries. This album and its predecessor was inspired by his late wife Harue Momoyama, a shamisen player and singer who studied under Chido, detailing each song. Toshi used these notes for this album. 2 CDs, 27 tracks.
