Japanese traditional music dates back countless centuries, having been imported from mainland China. Two defining characteristics of traditional Japanese music are a sparse rhythm, combined with a lack of regular chords, meaning that one cannot beat time with one’s hands. The intervals of silence (“ma” or “間”) are important, as the music’s flow is an attempt to reflect the feeling of nature.
