In Kyougen, It is a work that shows how Enmaou and demons blame the dead for hell. The flute, small drum, large drum and drum are played as hayashi musical accompaniment. It starts with the demon’s “How sinner, hurry up”, and when the dead begin to move, there are actor’s lines such as “Hurry up and hurry” that start inserting in between. The demon moves around the stage with a bamboo cane, and shows how he does his best, such as stepping on the beat. There are cases where the original roles of demons such as “Asahina” and “Yao” are played, and there are cases where humans such as “Shinjin” are set to practice the festival’s offerings.
