Tsugaru shamisen is normally a solo style. Fast and semi-improvised, a succession of young players have popularized the music in recent years. This album is tsugaru and other shamisen styles together with some great singing by male shamisen player Katsuaki Sawada, and female taiko drummer and singer Shigeri Kitsu. Superb singing and fantastic playing make this a stellar release. Hypnotic and powerful, comes with English liner notes.

Ref: FSD1793


Price: 25.99

Kitsu is a truly amazing minyo singer, a rare talent in Japan. Her voice is sharp and shrill, with a raw power and emotion. Her voice and taiko drumming is accompanied by tsugaru shamisen master Sawada, these songs performed perhaps close to their original intended style, instead of a modern watered down version. The songs are mostly from the Tsugaru region of northern Japan, but include some songs from Kagoshima and Nagasaki in the south of Japan and elsewhere. Some songs are up-tempo, others more plaintive, on one of the best min'yo albums available. 1. Amefuri Uta, Echigo Matsuzaka (Niigata) 2. Tasuke Haiya (Nagasaki) 3. Kagoshima Hanya (Kagoshima) 4. Kaga Haiya (Ishikawa) 5. Sado Okesa, Tate Okesa, Senkoba Okesa (Niigata) 6. Oina (Niigata)
