A disparate collection of 20th century folk recordings, from several\r\nregions of the islands of Japan. Magicians; a traditional rain dance\r\nperformed with umbrellas; a devotional to a hot spring - sung at the\r\nbaths with the tempo pounded out in the water; Tsugaru shamisen, the\r\npercussive style specific to the north; work songs and dances of field\r\nand sea. Thunder crack, horse-back rhythms from a pre-concrete,\r\npre-economic bubble era. - Trilogy.\r\nCompiled by Howard Williams from Honest Jons Records.
