Japanese Minyo Folksong
Minyo is a traditional Japanese folksong genre. The songs normally describe commoners’ lives, and they were transmitted orally over time. Minyo songs are often performed at celebrations and festivals, and often sung accompanied by shamisen. Minyo is not well known outside Japan. It will be a good opportunity to introduce this unique music genre to Vassar students.
