The music of Japan includes a wide array of performers in distinct styles both traditional and modern. The oldest forms of traditional Japanese music are shōmyō, Buddhist chanting, and gagaku, orchestral court music, both of which date to the Nara and Heian periods. The modern Japanese music scene ranges from rock, electro, noise, drone, avant-garde, jazz, ambient, punk, folk, metal, reggae, salsa, and tango to country music and hip hop.

    Japan has many amazing folk and jazz acts, shame that most of them are still completely obscure and underrated. Japanese post-rock and ambient is great, too!
