This is a short version of the original “JONGARA” in 8 minutes and added 5 parts of percussions. This is more rhythmical and is able to make gorgeous harmony.
The music is inspired by rhythm of a Japanese traditional musical instrument of Tsugaru-shamisen. The great feature of this music is taking improvisation aspect of jazz music. The powerful sounds makes this music dramatic with cherishing traditions. The shamisen is a stringed instrument shaped like a guitar and is often called a Japanese guitar. There are a lot in common mandolin and shamisen, although they have different characteristics. Hiro took an advantage of shamisen and made it into totally modern and original music.
