Summary "The music known as Gagaku spread from China throughout East Asia, reaching Japan in the 5th through the 9th centuries. Over the centuries, this traditional court music has undergone some changes, but its fundamentals remain unchanged. Gagaku is thus the world's most ancient form of orchestral music."
