Catalog no.: EM0001176

Item ID: 461816

A charming set of double transformations on this 7 inch. 'Kajyadhi Fu Bushi' is a traditional Ryukyu minyo (Okinawa folk song), a joyous celebratory classic which is usually sung at weddings, with lyrics describing how "beautiful buds unfold", using the distinctive Ryukyu/Okinawa pentatonic scale. Typically performed by a small ensemble of a singer accompanied by sanshin, the Okinawan precursor to the shamisen, the A-side has been transformed by jazz musician and conductor Jun Arasaki and his group Nine Sheep, with five sanshin, four winds, piano, guitar, bass, percussion and drums. Played only once, unrehearsed but perfect in execution, for a 1977 TV broadcast, this release has been taken from the only recording in existence. The B-side is yet another transformation, a remix by the Portland "fourth world" duo Visible Cloaks.
