Gagaku: Japan's ancient music & dance
The music known as Gagaku spread from China throughout East Asia, reaching Japan in the 5th through 9th centuries. This traditional court music has undergone some changes, but its fundamentals remain unchanged. Gagaku is thus the world's most ancient form of orchestral music.
Excellent descriptions of some instruments and dance techniques. ~Mike
