Fujii, Satoko / Min-Yoh Ensemble: Fujin Raijin (Victo)
Label: Victo    
Released in: Canada    

"Min-Yoh means folk music in Japanese. Almost all of them are made by people, not by professional composers. And they were arranged as they were played and sung, by all the people who played it. Because it is music for ordinary people, it usually has very simple form, structure and scales. After I studied classical music and jazz music, I began to be interested in Min-Yoh. I found in it a totally different power from the music I had previously studied and played. When I play, sing and listen to this music, it goes directly to my heart. It is hard to explain, but I can even feel it in my DNA. I have been thinking about making my own Min-Yoh for a long time. I wanted to leave it its power. There are many music styles that have used the form, scales and rhythms of Min-Yoh, but they often lose the power, which is the most important part of this music. I have in my band musicians who totally understand this idea. With their beautiful, deep and powerful expression, I was able to make this project happen the way I wanted to."-Satoko Fujii
