Songs to Energise and Enchant: Japanese Folk Song Group ‘Abeya’

Four young members of the multi-award-winning Japanese folk music group Abeya provide a stunning mix of song, dance, drumming, bamboo flutes, and the powerful, addictive 3-string tsugaru-jamisen. Abeya’s diverse repertoire includes highly ornamented ballads, dance songs, lullabies and work songs. The group has been praised for their ability to enchant audiences not only with their talent but also their highly engaging approach using humour, interaction, and poignant explanations to help make the music relevant to international audiences.
