Ayuo – Just Another Stateless Wanderer

This composition was originally composed as a theme to a film about a sixteenth century young man from Japan, who went to Vietnam to start a business of importing and exporting goods.Shortly after he settles, Japan is unified into an empire of 26 kingdoms by a military government, which closes the country, declaring that all who return will be executed. He is stranded forever, and his descendants disappear into the native population. The Chinese settlement which was build at the same time next to the Japanese settlement still thrives today.
