Program Notes

Ryukyu-Bushi (Song of the Samurai) is based on the Japanese folk melody Ryukyu-Bushi. The melody itself originated in the Ryukyu Islands, which stretch in a southwestward direction from Kyushu to the Chinese island of Taiwan. The largest of the Ryukyu Islands is Okinawa, which is where the martial art of karate was originated and developed prior to the island's 19th century annexation by Japan.
