Description

This album features geisha music

Notes

Most of the songs on this compilation, Nishiki, or "brocade", were sung by real jikata geiko (geishas trained as musicians) to accompany real maiko and geiko dances.
Jikata geiko on this album include Mameyoshi (Gion kouta) Yukizono (Natsu wa hotaru) or
Masuho (Rokudan kuzushi) among others.
This album also includes audio excerpts from the Kyo odori traditional stage dances (Kyo(to), or capital) at Miyagawa-cho (staged since 1950s), performed each year during the first 2 weeks of April.
