SHIMA-UTA
(Island Song)


One of my favorite Japanese songs,
and it's about Okinawa,
one of my favorite places in the world...

with big thanks for the reminder to Marie Mutsuki Mockett...

Beautiful and almost stately in its power...

The two tempo shifts at the end caught me by surprise. I wonder if it was written that way or just this particular arrangement...
