Program Notes

At the Japanese shrines, lion heads dance according to the festival music, and prayers and worships are held all over Japan.

I awaken the awe of the Shi-Shi Kagura, Japanese Lion Dance, I saw when I was young.

The music of the Japanese lion dance invites Japanese nostalgia, and I think the lion's dance is engraved in the heart of the Japanese.

Let's make the world view of the Japanese lion dance with four percussionists.
