I played with the dance team [Bugenko] which I met at Royon Island. The members are from Yoron but now they play mainly in Kawasaki and Yokohama.
I have played with them twice with the Kariyusi Band and I have always been moved by there music and dance.
I have been thinking why I get such a feeling and my answer for now is that there music is strongly connected to their way of living.
The music is mainly Yoron’s folk songs. When we are playing you see people dancing and singing along. It makes you want to join in naturally. To play I play what my soul tells me to do and it sounds good. When I do something that is unnatural immediately my heart tells me something is strange.
There is still a lot that I don’t know about Yoron’s music and I want to learn more.
There are some hints to make music that goes to peoples heart in Kariyusi and Bugenko.
