April 30 in Kamakura|The Kajiwara Clan in the Tale of the Heike|@Garden & Space Kuru Kuru

The Heike biwa accompaniment in “Heikyoku” (a narrative of the Tale of the Heike) is very dynamic, as are Kajiwara Heizo Kagesatoki and the children. The numbing loud voice when Keitoki returns to the battlefield for his eldest son Kagesue in “Nidonokake ” the shock of seeing Ikezuki taken by Sasaki in “Ikeshoku (Raw Food),” and the realization that he was tricked in “Ujigawanosen (Ujigawanosen)! On April 30, we will hold a small concert featuring a collection of Heike tales featuring the Kajiwara clan, which we cannot help but support. This time we have picked up “Ikezuki”, “Ujigawanosenjin”, and “Nidonokake” from the ninth volume.

Ujigawanosenjin” is a memorable piece that I experienced the joy of Heikyoku when I started attending my master’s school. The exchange between Sasaki Takatsuna and Kajiwara Kagesue is so enjoyable no matter how many times I hear it or tell it that I even made a furoshiki. I would like to talk about why I find it so enjoyable and the pleasure of listening to the narration, which is different from reading the text.
