This time we’ve got today's dankest for you right here at Norman Records: Shigeo Tanaka, a true master of the yumi, an ancient Japanese instrument/bow. As in, it actually fires arrows. Used in religious ceremonies known as kagura, this music contains ancient rhythms and harmonies straight from the soul of humankind. On record here is Tanaka's rendering of Takusa Saimon, a piece based on an old Japanese myth. Previously only available on an obscure 1990’s cassette tape, the kind folks at EM Records and Ryo Mountains have helped us make some of Japanese culture’s finest available to you.
