Japanese Folk Songs in the Yamabuki series –Sword of the Taka Samurai

While writing the Yamabuki series I have been inspired by various folk songs and dances, some of which I have shred with my alpha and beta readers. At their suggestion, I share one now . . . just for fun . . . which is part of Cold Heart.

As I research the 12th century in Japan, I see that scholars have only a narrow window on the society and not a lot of things are known about the common people. But music and old songs often have a way to giving as another way to experience human feelings.

On the day after the twelfth night, which is also the name of Shakespeare’s “musical,” I offer up this video of a song that has inspired my writing.

Hope you like it.
