CD Reviews

Pretty good Bon'odori collection
Barbara Nostrand | Syracuse, NY USA | 07/19/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The person who gave this recording one star clearly did not know what they were ordering. This is a collection of music for Bon Dancing. It is a fairly good collection. I would have prefered that it match one of the printed collections of bon dances so that all of the tracks could be easily applied to dance. Also, I was less than fond of the one track that included electric guitar music. Electric guitars were still very atypical in the 1980's when I presume that this recording was produced. Regardless, I have used this recording help introduce people to Japanese festival dance."
Acoustic Japanese folk
Barbara Nostrand | 04/27/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Compilation of traditional folk dance music selections (with vocals) from various parts of Japan. (Some of these tracks are on other CDs in the "Music of Japanese People" series.) These are more source type recordings, although not field recordings. But if one wants to get to the roots of the type of music which people like Shoukichi Kina, Nenes, etc. have electrified and modernized, this is good stuff."
