Duration: 1:35 Price: $15.00

In ancient Japan, the shogun were the military commanders appointed by the emperor. Grand and regal, when a shogun appeared to the public, there was a sense of awe and power at this warrior leader. Flanked by armies of samurai warriors, their power was obvious and their respect was demanded. This clever piece uses only the 5 notes used in a pentatonic scale (like playing just the black keys on the piano). This gives it a true Asian sonority.
