Liza Dalby (au & tr). Traditional Japanese ko-uta are the musical embodiment of the Japanese geisha in the intoxicating “flower & willow world.” Literally, these are “little songs” sung by a geisha who accompanies herself on the 3-stringed shamisen. Liza Dalby, an American who is fully trained in the arts of the geisha, is a magnificent guide who brings alive the spirit of this delightful musical form. This book presents beautiful calligraphy & vivid translations of 25 ko-uta, to which Dalby adds lively explanatory notes illuminating the puns & Japanese literary devices which might otherwise elude the Western reader. She also provides an intro. on the geisha & ko-uta. Also provides traditional musical notations for the shamisen as well as in standard Western form.
