|Abstract ||:||This is an unaccompanied chorus suite consists of three tunes. Each of them is based on traditional folk songs inherited since ancient times in Iriomote-island, where is on the east china sea about six hundred kilometers far from Okinawa main island.
Sonnai, a little village on the west side of Iriomote-island, had been keeping their agricultural celebration within it we can find various performances, old styles of songs and dances.
I had chosen three ritual songs among them, and make it compose with modern style for the male chorus unaccompanied. In each tune I treated hayashi, the nonsense refrains, as important musical idioms which represent effective scenes not in the voicing manners but structural meanings as a whole.
1. Iwai-Uta : Introductive song for Sichi-matsuri
2. Taue-Uta : Pray song for agricultural fertility
3. Ya-Takabi : Praising song for the house building|
