"KO-UTA" -Smooth lounge music in EDO-
There are several kinds of Japanese music. Mr. Yasumi's speciality is Kouta style.
"KOUTA"(Ko-Uta) is the simplest Japanese traditional music that extracts Kabuki story and represent the atmosphere of Geisha.
"Kouta" is played in duo, trio, or even solo. One vocal and one or two Shamisen(s).
Yasumi sings Kouta and plays Shamisen not only on stages but also in a cafe, lounge and some casual scene for young people.
KOUTA is like a jazz performance in a night club. Cool songs that represents sake and love affair. It is suited for adult night scene.
Enjoy the simple and cool sound of Japanese lounge music.
