A 12 track japan album (39m 6s) — released March 8th 2019 on Death Is Not The End

Early 1930s ryūkōka recordings from Japanese geisha Kouta Katsutaro.

Emerging during the early stages of the recording industry in Japan, the ryūkōka style adopted some western classical, blues & jazz elements into traditional Min'yō folk music. Kouta Katsutaro would become one of it's most popular proponents, and along with another popular geisha singer, Ichimaru, forms the basis of a period dubbed the "Katsu-Ichi Era".
