The KOTO is a Japanese string instrument. This CD is comprised of music composed by Akira Ifukube for that instrument and played here by Keiko Nosaka and Yukari Satoh. I did find one thing about this CD to be a bit odd. The CD is Japanese and the majority of the writing is in Japanese but part of the writing is also in French.
This is an interesting traditional sounding CD. For the most part this is very relaxing string music with a classical feel to it. I enjoyed the music very much. This is a great CD to put on, lay back in your easy chair and just drift along with.
