Bugaku

Bugaku, Japanese Court Dance, is accompanied by gagaku, the “elegant music” of the Imperial Court. This ancient art was imported to Japan as early as the 7th century, primarily from China and Korea. Refined and preserved in Japan since that time, it is the oldest extant orchestral music in the world.
