Tauebayashi

田植えばやし

Tauebayashi is a rice-planting song and dance that was formerly performed throughout the Hiroshima and Shimane regions in south western Japan.

It was performed as a work song, but also to strengthen the young rice seedlings.
Nowadays it is performed only as a folk dance.

This performance is by a group from Kawahira village in Shimane, at the Horanenya Matsuri of Gotsu Honmachi.
