Islands are like self-contained small worlds, with their own rules and own character. Okinawa is such a distinguishable island in Japan: Okinawan culture is quite different from that of the country's other prefectures, with its own music, dance and traditions. Taiko drums, the three-string banjo-like sanshin and vocals are the main sonic components of Okinawa’s music. Sounds of Okinawa Island speaks to the world outside and conveys the enchanted power of the island, full of magic and traditional heritage, possibly unfamiliar but worth a voyage of discovery into its wondrous sound world.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
