hello. I’m YUKIO singing an original Japanese song. Have you ever listened to Japanese songs? Maybe you’ve only listened to English songs. So this time, I would like to introduce a Japanese song that you do not know.
Originally, there was no theory of Western music in Japan, and it seems that there was no concept of a song. A long time ago, at festivals, there was “Noh” in the performing arts performed at temples and shrines. “Noh” is still performed, but the songs sung there are completely different from Western music. The rhythmic feeling of the drum called “tsuzumi” is unique to Japan.
Apart from “Noh”, there is a folk song called “Minyo” that has been handed down in the local areas of Japan. It’s a folk song, but it’s completely different from Western folk songs, and it doesn’t exist in major or minor.
Today’s popular songs around the world are mainly equal temperament songs with fixed keys, but I think that the Japanese people’s original sense of songs is probably different from these.
Therefore, the genre of the song “Enka” was born in the modern era by matching this “Minyo” with Western music. “Enka” has a scale and is basically based on Western music.
Until about 50 years ago, Japanese people loved this “Enka”, but recently it has not been able to go against the trend of Western music, and it has been further improved, “Kayokyoku” and recently “J-POP”. So-called Western pop music is being sung actively.
For “J-POP” etc., only the lyrics are in Japanese, and I feel that it is almost the same as Western music, but if you listen carefully, the chord progression will change drastically, and there are many delicate ones. To do. Perhaps there is something unique to Japan that foreigners do not understand.
Speaking of my original song, it is a unique song that is completely different from the mainstream Japanese music. To be more specific, it may be a Japanese song based on old black music, but I don’t think there is such a song in blues or jazz. I can’t explain it well. (smile)
All I can say is that I honestly express what comes to my mind. I think that the “Noh” and “Minyo” introduced above are also unknowingly influenced.
Why don’t you listen to my song like this? Are you tired of listening to only English songs? There is a lot of music all over the world. Don’t limit yourself to listening to it in your head!
You may hear “something” like Miles Davis. I’ve redesigned the page so that you can listen to my songs. If you listen to the song and like it, you can download it.
You and I are in different languages, but I hope you download it. And my dream is to be able to talk to you.
You can download YUKIO original Japanese songs! Would you like to listen? You can also listen to it.
I also distribute music on other sites.
