Product Description

Songs, prayers, offerings and tales of the Ainu, the native Japanese people living in Hokkaido (the northern main island). An important document of a culture that has been threatened during the 20th century, but still survives. Includes several spoken tracks, of limited interest to non-Ainu speakers, but nevertheless this is made up for by the fascinating music of others.
