Yumiko Tanaka (Futozao Shamisen, vocal). On Tayutauta, Tanaka uses the gidayu shamisen in ways that leave traditional playing methods far behind. Here, the instrument's characteristic flavor is nowhere to be found. The performances -- which incorporate such techniques as plucking, bowing, and the use of 'prepared' objects -- are calm and sedate, but suffused with a strong feeling of cohesion backed by Tanaka's distinctive musical stance and sensibility.
