Chapter Summary

This section of the book Traditional Folk Song in Modern Japan Sources, Sentiment and Society presents Audio-Videography which contains a list of useful or representative recordings relating to Japanese folk song, including CDs, VHS video tapes, long-playing phonodiscs and commercial cassette tapes. The anthologies are arranged from R1 to R76. The Japanese say that 'folk song is the heart's home town'. Traditional folk songs (min'yō) from the countryside are strongly linked to their places of origin and continue to play a role there. Today, they are also taught as a quasi-art music, arranged for stage and television, quoted in Westernized popular songs and so forth.

Keywords: Japanese folk song; min'yō; quasi-art music
