Sakura, Sakura, also known as the Cherry Blossom Song, is probably the most famous Japanese folk song outside of Japan. Its hauntingly beautiful melody will enchant your orchestra, and this piece is written to emulate the truly Japanese characteristics of the song. Your students will sound just like the traditional bamboo flutes (shakuhachi) as they play lightly and breathily, and will find it easy to pour all of their emotions and passion into performing this lovely piece. Duration: 4:36.
