YOSHINO BAIGŌ PLUM BLOSSOM FESTIVAL(吉野梅郷梅祭り) – PART II, MAR 16, 2014

This is the second topic about Yoshino Baigō Plum Blossom Festival(吉野梅郷梅祭り) . Click here for the first topic.
There were several events, such as Ohayashi(お囃子), Lion Dance(獅子舞)Min’yō Dance(民謡踊り) etc. I’d like to pick up Wadaiko(和太鼓)/Japanese Drum Show.

Wadaiko Show started just after 1:00PM.The team name is Ōme Daiko(青梅太鼓).

She is the leader of the team Ōme Daiko(青梅太鼓).

I cannot find their official page. Some performers must be high school students. But, they really played well.

Especially, this duo of a big guy(Left) and a good-looking guy(Right) in my first video beat well and powerfully.

They beat small and big drums rhythmically, not only their front drums but next drums.

It’s a bummer that I cannot share air vibration.

After 0:45 on this video, the big guy jumped and turned briskly. I wonder he is a judo athlete?

After 3:00 on this video, they beat both side of drum splendidly.

After this play, all audience gave applause. The team leader expressed their gratitude. A visitor called loudly « Encooooore!! ». Another visitors followed him. « Encore!! Encore!! »

It seemed they prepared for this encore.
The big guy played solo.


Here are another events of this festival.
10:00AM – 11:00AM Ohayashi(お囃子)
Ohayashi(お囃子) is a kind of Japanese music during festival. Performers often wear funny mask, Hyottoko(ひょっとこ).

11:05AM – 11:45AM Lion Dance(獅子舞)
I’ve ever seen various lion dance. This lion dance is quite different. Generally, a pair of people play lion dance. One person become front paws. The other become back paws. At this festival, each player wore a lion mask and danced.
