Epitaph for a Peach and Harvest Son: Spoken Words and Story Songs (CD)

By David Mas Masumoto with Larry Honda and Nikiko Masumoto

Available Now On CD

Spoken Words and Story Songs are born out of a collaboration between a writer and musicians. Stories have power to come alive with the spoken word. Music adds new meaning and life, not as background but in a duet, the voice speaks and the instrument sings. The result – “Story Songs”.

Sample Track: Baachan’s Massage from Harvest Son, flute duet by Larry Honda
