  • 1. Kumamoto   Traditional Folk Songs
  • 2. Three Famous Traditional Folk Songs <ul><li>Otemoyan </li></ul><ul><li>This song is about a woman, Otemoyan in </li></ul><ul><li>Higo (Kumamoto). </li></ul><ul><li>Senba-Tanuki </li></ul><ul><li>This song is about a raccoon dog (tanuki) in </li></ul><ul><li>Senba mountain. </li></ul><ul><li>Itsuki-no-Komoriuta </li></ul><ul><li>This song is a lullaby (komoriuta). And girls who are babysitter used to sing. </li></ul>
  • 3. A Song of Otemoyan <ul><li>I translated Japanese, </li></ul><ul><li>Otemoyan into English. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;I heard that you have </li></ul><ul><li>been married recently.” </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Yes, I have been married. But </li></ul><ul><li>my husband is a too plain </li></ul><ul><li>looking , so we haven't held our </li></ul><ul><li>wedding ceremony yet. We'll </li></ul><ul><li>be all right because there are </li></ul><ul><li>many people, a public official </li></ul><ul><li>of a village, a manager, ago- </li></ul><ul><li>between. &quot; </li></ul>
  • 4. Otemoyan <ul><li>Otemoyan is a traditional folk song of Kumamoto. </li></ul><ul><li>Otemo is a young lady in the Meiji ( 明治 ). </li></ul><ul><li>Otemoyan is a song for her marriage. </li></ul><ul><li>Otemoyan is very comical and rhythmical. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>Although Otemo tells her husband is plain-looking, I don't think she is discouraged for her marriage. I think this song is a interesting song rather than a sad song, and I think Otemo is so comical girl!!
  • 5. A Song of Senba-Tanuki <ul><li>&quot;Where are you from?” </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;I'm from Higo. ( 肥後 )&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>( Higo means old Kumamoto.) </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Where is Higo?&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>&quot; There is Kumamoto.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>&quot; Where is Kumamoto?“ </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;There is Senba!! </li></ul><ul><li>There are many racoon dogs </li></ul><ul><li>in the Senba mountain.&quot; </li></ul>
  • 6. Senba-Tayuki <ul><li>Senba-Tanuki is one of traditional folk songs of Kumamoto. ( Tanuki means a racoon dog.) </li></ul><ul><li>This song is a Kemari-song. The Kemari is a sort of football by nobles in ancient Japan, so Kemari-song is sung when we play Kemari. </li></ul><ul><li>Senba-Tanuki songs about Kumamoto.I think there are two </li></ul><ul><li>people in this song, and they are talking. </li></ul>We sing this talking on the rhythm. This is very rhythmical. In the old days, people eat racoon dogs. Of course, some people eat them now. I think this song means the old days. The Senba mountain actually exist, but the Senba mountain is actually a hill. This hill is in Kumamoto Daiichi high school. There are some racoon dogs now.
  • 7. Itsuki-no-Komoriuta <ul><li>Itsuki-no-komoriuta is also one of </li></ul><ul><li>traditional folk songs of Kumamoto. </li></ul><ul><li>Itsuki means Itsuki village in </li></ul><ul><li>Kumamoto.But This song is a sad </li></ul><ul><li>lullaby.In the past, the girl who is poor </li></ul><ul><li>must go to find the work, so many </li></ul><ul><li>girl works as babysitter.This Itsuki-no- </li></ul><ul><li>komoriuta is a sad song of girls when </li></ul><ul><li>they works very hard.Although this </li></ul><ul><li>song called a lullaby, this song isn't </li></ul><ul><li>for babies, I think.This song is the poor </li></ul><ul><li>girls song for herselves. This song </li></ul><ul><li>sings her sadness and pain. </li></ul>
