Shigeri Kitsu solo live vol. 4
Japanese folk songs


Shigeri Kitsu presents Japanese folk songs such as love songs, lullaby, festive songs, work songs, etc., rooted in regional communities from south to north of Japan.
These simple songs portray season's scenery, respect for nature, celebration and sorrow to everyday life, and the emotional attachment to the region.
Her expansive "Japanese Voice" passionately evokes us original Japanese landscapes and rhythms.

Voice and Japanese drum, absolute acoustic.
guest | Kasumi Watanabe, 25 strings Koto player

Although all songs are sung in Japanese, you don't need language skill to enjoy this event :)
