Various - A Collection of Miyako Min'yō Butoh Songs = 宮古民謡舞踊曲集
Used LP 1975
Disc:VG+ (good shape)
Jacket:VG+ (light wears/stains on back)
A collection of Miyako Island Min'yō featuring the participation of such leading figures in the Miyako Min'yō scene as legendary singer Gensei Tanahara, and Shigenobu Taira, who established the Min'yo Research Institute and worked to popularize Miyako min'yo. One of the representative Miyako Min'yō song "Hounen No Uta", "Nariyamaayagu" is still popular today and Min'yo song contests are held just for this song, "Toganiayagu" is sung at the opening of events such as weddings and celebrations, "Lullaby" sung by a woman (child?) with plenty of emotion, great contents thoughout. It’s very hard to find due to self-production release of a small island. It also seems that it is also being serialized.
