• 1. Otemoyan
  • 2. Kushimoto Bushi

A pair of traditional Japanese folk music reissues sang by Chiemi Eri, one of the top female Showa star singers along with Hibari Misora, best known for her exotic Latin Jazz covers of Japanese folk music in the late 50’s.Taken from “Chiemi No Minyoshu (Japanese Folk Songbook of Chiemi)”, 10inch LP released in 1958, two of its popular songs are now being reissued on a 7” format. “Otemoyan” is a splendid combination of Japanese folk song with an Afro Cuban rhythm performed by Tokyo Cuban Boys. Coupled with “Kushimoto Bushi”, a folklore from Wakayama prefecture styled in Mambo music.
