東郷音頭・Tōgō Ondo

2015.09.02 (Wed)

 

This workman’s march was written to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the former town of Tōgō. Prospective lyrics were solicited from the public, and the final lyrics were selected by a screening committee which included Kurayoshi’s famed woodblock artist Tomisaburo Hasegawa. A light song about Yurihama’s pears and the lakeshore, this song has become well-known in the area and is used for Tōgō’s Obon dance, among other aYuririnnnual events.

  旧東郷町の町制25周年を記念して制作されました。歌詞は公募による候補の中から、倉吉市在住の版画家長谷川富三郎氏らが加わる選考委員会により選ばれました。湖畔のいで湯と梨の町を軽やかな曲調で歌い上げる音頭は、東郷地域の盆踊りや地域行事で盛んに踊られ、親しまれています。
