** all-ages folk and children's music from east asia **

I don’t believe this album would be complete without this song as a closing number. Originally from Okinawa, Japan, Tinsagunu Hana is a song about appreciating the love and wisdom of your parents. It is sung soulfully by Sonny Ochiai, who also plays the snakeskin sanshin (Japanese plucked string instrument). What better way to end the album than an homage to mine and everybody else’s hard-working parents? Thank you mom and dad!
