Composer: Kiyoshi Nagata
Arrangement: Kiyoshi Nagata
Premiere Performance: November 29, 2008 - Ryerson Theatre Toronto
Recording Title: 10th Anniversary Concert DVD

Jinari (rumbling of the earth) begins as an unaccompanied improvised solo. As the solo develops and quickens in pace, it is joined by the backing rhythms of the ura-uchi (back side of the taiko) and atari-gane (brass gong). This piece was composed for Nagata Shachu’s 10th anniversary concert in 2008.
