Sakurasakura, Akatonbo, Konomichi…

Japan has a rich heritage of folk song, but the history of folk music is extremely complicated and tangled. “Sakura sakura(cherry blossoms)” is a traditional song depicting spring. “Aka-tonbo(red dragonfly)” is a popular nursery song. “Kono-michi(This Path)” is written by Hakushu Kitahara who was a leading Japanese poet.
Kana Kimura performed beautifle dance, inspired by 3 folk songs Sakurasakura, Akatonbo and Konomichi, with L’ensemble de Sèto.
