Various – Traditional Folk Dances Of Japan

LP, 1959, USA, Folkways Records/Ethnic Library, FE 4356

Incl. original liner notes sheet. Library sticker on label and marks of sticker on cover.

This field recording by Mary L. Evans represents a wide variety of traditional Japanese dances with ranging subject matters such as draught, war, famine etc. The recording captures both the music and the noises made by the dancers (grunts, chants, feet stomping) which adds additional energy and depth to the music and draws the listener in further. The liner notes include detailed explanations by Evans of the song meaning and history, as well as information about the dance performances themselves. With photographs and select lyrics (translated into English)

EUR 30,– (condition: NM / NM)
