Kodo Participation in Recording of Fuyumi Sakamoto's Enka Song "Otoko no Himatsuri"


Kodo took part in the recording of Fuyumi Sakamoto's first enka (traditional-style Japanese popular ballad) song in five years, "Otoko no Himatsuri" (Men's Fire Festival). The theme of this song is Wakayama Prefecture's renowned Nachi Fire Festival. This piece joins Ms. Sakamoto's enka repertoire of "male songs" and "rousing anthems to fire up Japanese men." Kodo's Tomohiro Mitome, Mitsuru Ishizuka, and Tsuyoshi Maeda participated in the recording.
