We are surrounded by traditions and cultures that, handed down through generations, also gradually evolve. Performances, crafts, and festivals are such examples. The techniques, methods, thoughts and feelings of our predecessors continue to the present day. While culturally important, this is typical of daily life. From parents to children, from teachers to students, and from seniors to juniors, we have our lives today by the repetition of things around us. To pass someone else's hard work on to the next generation may be the best way to repay our predecessors.

The minimum number of players is five, and a fuller sound will be produced by larger formations.
