Saibara: Heian Court Poems edited and translated by Tomer Inbar (Chin Music Press, paperback)
Publication Date: September 22, 2020
Publisher Marketing: "Saibara, a form of Japanese folk song formalized in the Heian Era, are simple poems of everyday life that were set to music. Courtiers would sing the songs in the Kyoto and Nara regions to entertain the upper class. Inbar's translations help us see these earthy, often erotic slices of everyday life anew."
