Kiyoshi Yoshidas follow-up to his extremely popular Asian Drums album. Once again, he creates a mesmerizing set of compositions using traditional Japanese wadaiko drums, skillfully blended with the synthesizer. Let this hypnotic energy resonate within you!
To enhance your enjoyment of the music, removable incense sticks are included in the spine of the CD jewel case.

I don't have the first of these but I've got a few others in the genre, including Kodo, and this fits right in but has a smoother, more polished feel probably because the drums aren't dominant on most tracks. Important, yes, dominant, no. Personally, I like both styles and if you've been exposed to something like Kodo and liked that, then I'd definitely recommend this to you as something equally good but just a little different.
Bottom line: recommended!
Burning the incense sticks that come with the album while you listen, is an extremely soothing experience. My favorite track is WAZAWAI which features nothing but drums. The other tracks generally have guitars, flutes, and traditional Japanese and Chinese instruments.
