FOLK MUSIC FROM JAPAN [coll.] – [Columbia Masterworks]
aarbor 11/20/2019 A Library
This is volume XI of Alan Lomax’s Columbia World Library of Folk and Primitive Music. The music is from Japan, the Ryukus, (Okinawa) Formosa (Taiwan) and Korea. It was collected and edited by Genjiro Masu for the Japanese Music Institute of Tokyo. The recordings are very good, carefully done. There is some great material here. I especially enjoyed the Formosan and Korean recordings on the B side, although I’m not sure why they are included in a collection of Japanese folk music. Folk music is not boring!

Fresh batches of new music are released to DJs every Wednesday evening, so check back in a few days.
