Product Notes

From the country that gave us Sushi, Sumo and Karaoke, take a listen to the songs that have been loved in Japan for generations. Greg Irwin thinks that if the world ever had a chance to listen to these songs known as 'Doyo' in Japan, everyone would want to sing along. This unique CD features traditional Japanese Songs performed in English by American Singer-Songwriter Greg Irwin. The album has been warmly received in Japan where critics called it 'healing and moving.' "Doyo" are traditional Japanese Children's Songs that appeal to all age groups. It is believed in Japan that they represent the heart and soul of the Japanese people but they are not well known in the West. Greg Irwin, an American singer-songwriter, has translated and written English lyrics for over 100 of these classic Japanese songs. This is the original recording of Greg's English translations of eleven of Japan's most beloved and popular songs along with three original songs. Greg Irwin received the first ever Doyo Culture Prize in Japan, along with the Popular Music Doyo Grande Prix. In the United States, he was a winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. He first performed these traditional Japanese songs at Lincoln Center in New York City and has performed "Doyo" in concerts all over Japan. The songs on this CD have been featured on several NHK Television and Radio Programs in Japan. All Japanese are familiar with the songs as they were formerly taught in schools, and most people have a great affection for them. They are considered to be an important element of Japanese culture. The CD comes with both beautiful lyric notes in English and the original Japanese.
