A form of music , “hauta”, was extremely popular during the Edo Period(1603-1868). These short love songs were song well before the Edo period; however, when the people in the Edo period found the charm of the shamisen instrument they became singers and songwriters for these melodies..
 Since “hauta” was popular at the time, it was only fitting that the latest songs from these singers and songwriters be about love and have the accompaniment of the shamisen.
 Even now, the sprit of Edo is with us as we share its warmth and comfort throuth the music of "hauta." The music takes us back to the wonderful charm of life during the Edo period.
