Tune of the Day: Hamabe no uta

aka “Song of the Seashore”

Japanese composer Tamezo Narita composed this beautiful yet pacific song in 1916, two years after entering the Tokyo Music Academy. In recent times, James Galway popularized the song among flutists, including it in many of his albums.

Thanks to Johann from Sri Lanka for suggesting this piece!
