AllMusic Review by

The music covers a wide range of ritual music and dance including Shinto Kagura, agricultural Dengaku, and Furyu which accompanies festival parades of various sorts. This is music of great variety and beauty, from a shamaness giving oracles accompanied by drumming to vocals with flute and drums and various forms of hopping percussion dance.
