The Japanese folk music here reproduced was selected from eighty-odd recordings made directly in the field during 1950-51 in an area of Japan centering about Okayami prefecture. A few of the songs of more distant areas are included. The selections are to a large measure representative of the Folk Music of all of Japan. Because some of the types of folk music, especially the Kagura and Bon dancing songs, may be extremely lengthy, only relatively short excerpts from them are reproduced here.
Includes four page insert with introduction and notes on the recordings.
