I prefer a biwa-and-chant myself. In fact if I could find a recording of someone doing the story of Dan-no-Ura I'd use it.

Hi Lowfighter,

While I don't have any links for music downloads, here is a link that will explain more about the different types of traditional Japanese music.

The war era music that most people think of is usually Shamisan or Shakuhachi. You can use this to do searches for MP3 downloads. Good luck!

Hi. My favorite is a CD I have from a group called Yamato Ensemble (Yamato Ito-take). It is titled "The Art of the Japanese Bamboo flute and Koto - A selection of Japanese Chamber music". This is NOT chamber music by Western standards by any stretch of the imagination. A note indicates info@arcmusic.co.uk as a contact address. Arcmusic is the label... and also noted are these numbers..
EUCD 1248
LC 5111

This is an excellent example of "traditional" flute, Koto and vocal. Very similar to Noh theater music, extremely ethnic and nice to listen to. Try it if you can get it, highly recommended by...ME! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Some years ago (very early nineties) I bought three CDs of The Ondekoza. A piece like Yamato (The Ondekoza Kagura album, 1990) is great for use with PF.

The big drums make that typical sound that we westerners associate with Japanese war(rior) music, even if its false or a cliche.

You might find The Ondekoza a good buy, since the CDs vary in content from very relaxing and soothing to fast devil drum rythms.

If you want a Japanese WW2 musical atmosphere, it should be the military marches that were all the rage then. No one was listening to taiko or biwa or flutes. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

(Just click on the links. There's text below the download bar (sometimes English, sometime Japanese). You have to click on that to play the file once loading is complete.)

Japanese war-era music sounds a lot like the Soviet military songs, at least to my ears...

They also sound a lot like the German stuff, at least the more march orientated music. The Germans also had a weakness for the operetta sound.

Thanks for the grat link though, downloaded all of them!
