JAPANESE SHAMISEN, Chamber Music (Jiuta) with Koto and Shakuhachi, originally recorded in the 1960s, is now digitally available on the Lyrichord Archive Series. The shamisen stringed instrument is the great cultural bequest of the Edo Period (1615-1868). Its bittersweet twang accompanied the early folk songs, the sagas of military heroes, and was part of the background cacophony of the pleasure district of old Edo (Tokyo). Chamber Music, in ensemble with koto, shamisen and shakuhachi playing contemporary music, are referred to as jiuta, and are beautifully represented on this recording.

Tracks:
1. Miyako Odori (2 Kotos) - 5:35
2. Kurokami (Shamisen, Koto) - 6:10
3. Keshi No Hana (Koto, Shakuhachi) - 4:39
4. Zangetsu (Instr. & Vocal) - 14:58
5. Ukifune (Instr. & Vocal) - 7:34
