ABSTRACT

In the Sato-kagura's music in the Kanto region, a short rhythmic motif called Teketetton is often used that is mainly played by drums (sometimes a bamboo flute is included). In March 2016, I presented a paper titled “Study on the Origin of Kagura Musical Accompaniment ‘Teketetton’: Focusing on the Relationship Between the ‘Age-byōshi’ (in ‘Komagaku’) and ‘Teketetton’” in The Journal of Next-Generation Humanities and Social Sciences. In the paper, I proposed the hypothesis that this rhythmic motif is derived from the Age-byōshi (rhythmic motif) that is used in the music Komagaku music that came to Japan from the Korean Peninsula. First, in this paper, I reconsider the possibility that Teketetton may be derived from Komagaku's repertoire Nasori, which uses Age-byōshi as an accompaniment, in comparison to Bugaku in the local areas. Next, I compare rhythmic motifs in the performance Ryūden/Ryūten in Hayachine Kagura and the Teketetton and point out similarities and differences. Finally, from noting that the Tengu's accompaniment of the repertoire Amakudari of Hayachine Kagura (Take Kagura) uses the same rhythmic motif as Ryūden/ Ryūten, I presented the hypothesis that Hayachine Kagura's Ryūden/ Ryūten retains the transitional form in which Age-byōshi of Nasori is diverted as Teketetton in the repertoire of Tengu.
