David Hughes is an American musicologist who studied ethnomusicology at the University of Michigan and Japanese music and Far Eastern languages at the same university. He has also performed with a number of Japanese music groups. This album was produced together with Yoshio Tanaka, shamisen player of the Nihon Min'yo Yowa-kai. It is a cross-ethnic min'yo session, featuring members of the Nihon Min'yo Yoseikai as well as Kaikoku performers. The songs are sung by Gina Barnes, a former guide for David Hughes and the American Pavilion at the Osaka Expo. Highly recommended.A5: 谷茶前
