Day 04 - A Song that Makes You Sad

Iyomante Upopo - Ando Umeko

This is a song in Ainu, the language of the indigenous people of Japan. The Wikipedia article on the Ainu people will explain their history and their struggle to retain their culture better than I can.

The Ainu language is moribund--likely to go extinct very soon. There are language revitalization efforts, but that's no guarantee that Ainu will be around in, say, ten or twenty years.

Ando Umeko, an Ainu folk musician, died in 2004.
