Yas-Kaz - Jomon-Sho, 1984

Peaceful and idyllic new age album by Japanese composer and student of gamelan music, Yas-Kaz. Yas-Kaz rose to musical prominence composing for the dance troupe led by one of the founders of Butoh, Tatsumi Hijikata. The album features a wide range of entirely acoustic instruments and field recordings and was made for stage performance by Sankai Juku Butoh Group at Theatre de la Ville, Paris. FANTASTIC.
