オーラル・ヒストリーと音楽からみる「神明社神楽」の近現代史 : 『三韓座』における幕末鼓笛隊の影響と戦後改編 A Modern History of "Shinmeisha-Kagura" Based on Oral History and Musicology : The Influences of the Late Edo Period Drum and Fife Corps and Post-World War II Reorganization on the "Sankanza" Repertoire
In the Arakawa-Shiroku area (located in the City of Chichibu, Saitama prefecture), there is an old kagura (local Shinto-based folk performing art), called "Shinmeisha-Kagura". Because of the lack of documentation, it is difficult to understand this kagura's history. "Sankanza", one of the Kagura repertoires, depicts a legend in which Jingiakogo conquered the ancient Korean peninsula (so-called "Sankan-seibatsu"). Interestingly, this musical program "Choren" includes a melody from the drum and fife corps from the late Edo period, for example, a melody in "Oranda-Gakutai" (from Chiba prefecture). In addition, under international influence after World War II, this program was reorganized by Hamanaka Yadenji, a mentor of the successors of this Kagura. In this paper, I would like to clarify the process of the development of Shinmeisha-Kagura in modern times through the analysis of "Sankanza".
