"This worthy volume in the Japanese World Music Library series contains two chanted epic Ainu tales. The Ainu, the mysterious aboriginal people of Japan's Hokkaido island, are almost gone. The man on this disc is one of the last, and possibly THE last who speaks the language. As a linguistic relic, this is a Rossetta Stone, and hearing the peculiar language chanted is quite an experience. For those looking for enjoyable music however, this is not a recommendable disc."
