On his website (https://eee.uci.edu/programs/rgarfias/s … japan.html) ethnomusicologist Robert Garfias has MP3s of some rare pre-WWII recordings of sokyoku and gagaku from the collection of 78s of his koto teacher in the 1950s, Haru Suwada. Shakuhachi players on these recordings include Yoshida Seifu, Notomi Judo I, and Araki Kodo IV. Well worth a listen.
Thanks for posting this find. Very interesting.
Better audio quality than I expected. Those 78s must have been well
Thanks for this. Rick! Excellent!
