sleeve : EX-(slight fading)

This is an album of Turkish folk music released in 1973 from King Records' "Folk Music Series," supervised by Fumio Koizumi, a leading researcher of world folk music in Japan, and Toyo Nakamura, who has long introduced and reviewed music as an editor of Music Magazine. The album features a performance by Hilmi Rit, one of Turkey's leading qanun players. He plays improvisations and folk dances with darbukkah rhythms based on several traditional techniques, and the sound is somehow nostalgic for Japanese people. It is a very pleasant sound.
