    How to use "Descant on" in context?

    The Japanese period instrument known as the shamisen is said to have originated from China. The shamisen, or Chinese lute, was first brought to Japan in the 6th century AD and eventually developed into its own unique form. During the 14th century, a few Japanese monks developed the art of singing accompanied by the shamisen, which they called the koto- shamisen. The koto- shamisen is a two-stringed instrument with a pear-shaped body and a japanese kempei (honeycomb) built into the sounding board.
