Interesting and original.
I like the bends on whatever the stringed instrument is. The percussion is
neat; I can imagine the percussionist sitting amidst a number of
instruments, and changing up... In the first half, I am getting a whisper of
distortion in the left channel, and I can't tell if it's the recording being a
little "hot", or if, I don't know, maybe I blew out my headphones already....
Reminds me of the Cooder/Bhatt Meeting By The River CD, a bit...

Really lands in that broad plain between the delta blues and raga...

cool
i was going to disagree with ejh about which side the distortion was
coming from, til I switched my cans around to the right ears ... other than
that, very nice

Unusually great
OK Pongo... so you must have listened to some Japanese classical/folk
music? There are parts of this that sound like they're right off some
old LPs I bought over there of old folk songs, classical-Japanese, and
old Kabuki-play recordings... and then you wander into blues and
other areas... this is very cool! The koto (the plucked "bendy" string
instrument at the beginning) sounds great... your switch to other
melodies (like the sing-song folk march at the end) is nice, keeps the
interest throughout.

So, I would be very interested in a couple things if you have time to
answer... #1 - What were your influences, did you hear this kind of
music elsewhere, and if so, where? and #2 - DId you use any Jampack
loops? I would love to see you fill out a little more information in your
description. This must have taken a long time to put together! It is
great fun to listen to. Crisp clean recording, except for the fuzzy
distortion Ejh noticed on the left side near the beginning.

ttfn,
Drakonis

Agreed on Distortion
I listened to this again and heard the distortion. Thanks, I might go back and fix
that.

Digging this!
Dude I'm really digging this! There is that distortion or over modulation. But the blend of styles is really interesting. It goes from dark eastern tones to making me want to dance a jig. I actually listened twice!

peace,
