Indigenous music from Hachijojima, a small island south of Tokyo, performed on drums, with vocal chanting. "Hachijo drumming is a form where two players play a two sided barrel drum, one player being rhythm, while the other improvises thus creating a unique form... Taiko drumming is a tradition that has passed down through the centuries refining itself from log rhythms in ancient days to the traditional drums now... an ancient expression of the Japanese sense of beat."
