Sakura Sakura, Kou Ga and Kokiriko Bushi

Sakura, Sakura

This set is part of the following collections:

Sakura Sakura ("Cherry Blossoms, Cherry Blossoms") is a Japanese folksong about Spring, with music by Teiichi Okano and lyrics by Tatsuyuki Takano.

Kou Ga - I was given this tune by a Japanese woman who was learning whistle from me. I have no idea of its background.

I got Kokiriko Bushi from a recording by the Matsu Take Ensemble from Japan.
