Shigin: Chanting to Chinese Poetry

Abe Shũfũ I, Abe Shũfu II, and Hal Gold
Shigin: Chanting to Chinese Poetry

This 1975 album features the unique style of performance that is the fusion of Chinese poetry, shih or shi, and Japanese samurai vocalization, gin. Shigin: Chanting to Chinese Poetry balances a relaxed pace with powerful tone and precise delivery. Liner notes include a full history of the art of shigin as well as translations and original texts for each piece.
