Geisha Blues is a DVD of the intimate music of the geisha world. Liza Dalby introduces the genre of ko-uta, with recordings of the Kyoto geisha Sumika and shamisen player Kasuga Nobuyuki. Each song is accompanied by evocative imagery and Japanese and English text. The varied moods expressed by these songs give a direct feel for the appeal of the geisha world. These are the sophisticated cafe chansons of Japan. Ko-uta are sexy, elegant, plaintive, colorful, and humorous.
