From Autumn harvest festivals to traditional Japanese folklore steeped in rich history, this album shows the diversity and power of the Japanese drums. From stories of ship-crews being saved by the organization of synchronized beats, to a picturesque soundscape of waves in the sea, to a peaceful thankfulness for loved ones and nature, this release is full of sound stories. This release also features ‘purification drumming’ heard in Buddhist temples before, during and after ceremonies and a famous taiko drum beat symbolizing the sounds of samurai riding on horseback.
