Okinawa Minyo Katcharsee Special

SYOEI KINA

Okinawa Minyo Katcharsee Special

Ref: FSD1606


Price: 26.99

Syoei Kina, father of Shokichi Kina, has had very few albums released, despite his undoubted standing in the Okinawan music world. In 2001 this has been partly rectified with the release of two compilations. This CD concentrates on the upbeat, katcharsee style of music, recorded mostly in the 1970s. Mostly well known tunes, played with a funky style that all seems but lost these days.

SYOEI KINA

Okinawa Minyo Nasake Uta Special

Ref: FSD1607


Price: 26.99

The second compilation album of Syoei Kina focuses on slower style ballads, but still manages to keep a gently rolling rhythm and funkiness, like no one else with the exception of Seijin Noborikawa. Not the standard solo sanshin, but accompanied by a band. Probably eclipses the katcharsee CD above but the two together make a perfect set to hear the range of real Okinawan music. Recommended.
