This is a piece of genre Min'yo from the Min'yo School.
History (Takahashi Yujiro):
|"Akita Horse-dealer's Song". In the north until recently, men led strings of horses to or from distant horse-markets travelling through the night. As with "Nambu Ushoioi Uta", a song could ease the stress on both man and beast. At the markets, the horsemen exchanged songs like these, eventually creating local and individual variants.|
Keep moving, ponies, hurry along, Brownie: the sun is setting in the western mountains.
It's lonely being a horseman, all alone on the road at night, with nothing but the sound of the bridle behind you.
Akita Magouta appears on the following albums
