Merci Onxidlib.
It's good and groovy, dancing indeed. I don't know what Akira Sakata talks about on the first track, but it's fun.

Hi Igor,

it's Akira Sakata himself.

He has recently recorded a CD where he recites the Heike > here

He needs such a voice for this Japanese epos - that's were his voice's coming from ;-)

hahah, of course i had no doubt that the voice belongs to Sakata himself, as for Japanese epos - that's an interesting detail, i really have to learn more about using it in music! thanks!
