The country of Japan is located along Asia's eastern coast. Once isolated from the West, Japan is now a modern nation-state and economic superpower. Japan's warrior class, known as the samurai, emerged in the 12th century and endured for seven hundred years. They were private soldiers hired by wealthy landowners to protect property. Adorned in lacquered metal armor, their weapons included the dagger, bow, and sword. While history tells us how people lived, music communicates how they felt. Best wishes as you experience Battle of the Samurai. May your music take you to different times and distant places!
