Gamelan Yunta

Ref: FSD5462


Price: 21.99

Latest album from Yaeyama's Tetsuhiro Daiku is a collaboration with Indonesian gamelan. Okinawan music and gamelan music use the same five note scale, so this is a perfect match, and as with most releases on the Off Note label definitely worth checking out. Nine tracks including a bonus track and two remixes.

Jinta Wonderland

TETSUHIRO DAIKU & CHINDON TSUSHINSHA

Jinta Wonderland

Ref: FSD3119


Price: 25.99

Tetsuhiro Daiku recorded some of the most groundbreaking and pioneering Okinawan music of the 90s when he combined Okinawan music with chindon. In 2006 he's reunited with some of the same musicians (the Aurasian Brass Band) but for the first time possibly Japan's leading chindon group from Osaka, the mighty Chindon Tsushinsha. The results don't disappoint. This is a big project, some 23 musicians playing chindon, trumpet, clarinets, banjo, saxophones, accordion, tuba, ukulele, pianica, electric guitar, Hammond organ and more are combined with Daiku's sanshin and distinctive voice. It's not overproduced however, instead each track sounds different but the album hangs together perfectly. The 16 tracks are mostly Japanese songs dating back to between 1901 and 1935, mostly from the 1920s, the hit songs of the day. There are some children's songs too featuring a charming small children's choir. A monumental album.

Houraikou, exo-Pai Patirohma

Ref: FSD1714a


Price: 31.99

Superb double album featuring Daiku's now regular Japanese band members and a few new additions. Mandolin, accordion, tuba, saxophone, ukulele, piano, drums, percussion and a host of other instruments accompany Daiku's sanshin and vocals, with some help on vocals by wife, Naiko. Songs range from Japanese standards, such as Japanese Rumba, to Okinawan traditional favourites such as "Asadoya yunta" and some originals. The theme of the album is searching for a "utopia" of non-categorized, just good music. In this they have definitely succeeded. Constantly surprising, challenging and entertaining.

From Two Ocarina Festivals

Ref: FSD2200a

The first 5 tunes feature Okinawan Tetsuhiro Daiku performing standards such as Tsuki nu Kaisha, Tinsagu nu Hana, Toshin Doi and Asadoya Yunta, together with a group of ocarina (South American ceramic small flute) players. The rest is made up of tracks by a group of school children all playing ocarina, ocarina and drums, and other small groups. It's all recorded live at ocarina festivals. Bizzare, yet enjoyable.
