AIR - day 49


長良川おんぱく(温泉泊覧会)のイベントに参加してきました。
里唄(筏唄、作業唄、わらべ唄など)を歌い継ぐ、井上博斗さんに率いられ、
要所をまわりながら、その土地にまつわる唄を聴くというもの。

I joined a tour walking Suhara area where is 15 mins away from Mino by car.
This tour is guided by Hiroto Inoue who is a young folk singer researching about
local folklore and Japanese traditional performance art. 
The genre of the song is called "Sato-uta" (village-song) that everyone sang in their everyday life.
He guided historical places and sang some folk-songs related with the places.





 洲原神社からスタート。
Started from Suhara Shrine.









長良川では昔、木材を筏に組んで名古屋方面へ運んでいたそうです。
筏を操る時に歌われていた筏唄。

In the past they lumbered in mountains and made a raft of timbers in order to transport to bigger cities.
This is a song raftsmen sang on the raft.
