"Echigo-Jishi" was composed in 1811 by Kineya Rokuzaemon IX, a Kabuki player/composer. Echigo was the part of Japan now known as Niigata. The "lion" refers to a "lion dance" of the region. / Echigo-Jishi is a humorous and satirical "patter song" listing products of the Echigo district. One of these products is the lion dance. / The song has a beautiful and haunting tune, with a striking melodic feature: the upward thrust to F# in measures 15 and 17; before this, we have heard F natural in the lower octave, but no F#. The tempo is fast, and there are many verses. This work is still well-known in Japan and is often performed as a solo koto piece. / Source : Nagai and Kobatake Songs (1892)
