Kagura


Kagura (神樂 / 神乐)
A traditional style of music and dance used in religious Shinto ceremonies. Kagura dances dedicated to native deities are a reenactment of the propitiatory dance that lured the sun goddess Amaterasu from her cave in ancient myth. The dances are performed to the accompaniment of chants, drums, brass gongs and flutes, and have remained unchanged for the past 1500 years. There are two types of music: one to praise the spirits or seek their aid, the other to entertain the gods.
