So as I'm sure some of you are plenty aware, I actually LARP somewhat regularly and boffering LARP is totally a thing.
This is my bard.
Viewer discretion is advised, I will not pay for your therapy.
Now that you've basked in the glory of Grape Juice Samurai, this is my actual request.
Being a samurai - as in a character that evokes Japanese easily - I do, naturally, end up singing in Japanese when I play him. Which was actually received pretty well! People loved to fight with a musical accompaniment, and I love to kick ass and sing at the same time.
Problem is: a large variety of my repertoire is on the modern side. And much of it is... fairly recognizable. I need songs that:
1) Are in Japanese
2) Sound closer to what you'd expect medieval or traditional Japanese songs to sound
3) Are not too well-known so people cannot instantly link it to popular anime or whatever.
Any help you guys could offer would be greatly appreciated.
(Songs on the older side - 70's and 80's - are pretty good too.)
