To the Saga synthesis top

We open "folk song" which sings in Saga, and was inherited to the public on WEB

The last update date:

 Folk song occurs from local everyday life naturally and is traditional songs handed down by oral tradition.

 A lot of songs of type coherent to life (laborious works) including rice-transplanting song, rice-reaping song, tea pickers' song, big catch song remain in folk song of Saga other than "chest large oblong chest song" "Shintaro of take", too.

 We investigate folk song under Saga statistically and, based on "folk song - Saga folk song command investigation report - of Saga" that we collected (Saga Board of Education 1988), digitize and are released on homepage of this hotel. Of these, 800 pieces contain sound and can enjoy singing voice with "taste" of local people.

 As anyone pushes forward digitization anywhere anytime to use, taking this occasion, we have you get close to their living local "folk songs of Saga" and expect that it is connected in tradition of traditional culture by having you utilize in elementary school or kindergarten.
