International » Japanese Traditions » Noh

Combining music, dance, poetry, and drama into an elaborate art, Noh is a classical form of performance from Japan. Passed down for generations among professional families, noh players -- mostly men -- travel around the country to perform, though Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka are the homes of most noh performances. Noh has also fostered a large amateur following, among men and women, who also perform. Though there are few releases featuring noh, a few world-slanted companies have released performances: Lyrichord (Japanese Noh Music) Folkways (Noh & Kyogen Plays), and Barenreiter (Noh Play/Recitation to Biwa).
