Folk Music of Japan

What a gem to stumble on!  The recordings are a little quiet and noise riddled, but pretty easy to ignore once you start diving into the material.

At first I felt that some of the track were very similar to many Native American recordings and performances I’ve listened to; but as I continued through the album there was also a lot of call-and-response that was very akin to a lot of traditional West African &/or African American music, which was very cool.

Also little kids chanting in chorus is adorable!!
