Johannes asked me about traditional Japanese music in Kabuki theatre.
Kabuki is a kind of musical theatre that consists of dance, music (though dancers and singers roles are completely seperated) and acting to tell a story, often a love story. All the performers are male and traditionally a son follows the father's foot.
Here is a very classic traditional dance piece Sagi Musume (Heron Maiden) performed by my favorite admirable Kabuki actor, BANDO Tamasaburo.
It may seem slow at the beginning (at least for me). But I'd advise you to watch till the end becuase there is a surprise!
So this was just a tird of the piece. If you like, you can see the following part.
Then the last part.
How did you enjoy?
