Haya-fue (fast flute)
It is the hayashi musical accompaniment to be played when the back shite , back tsure, etc. appear. It is played in a sudden and brave manner when the ghosts of dragon gods, devils, and warlord’s spirits run and appear. Officially, it is a two- step, three- section , but when used in a short form or for the Tsure appearing case, it is a one- step, two- section . Flute, small drum, large drum and drum are also played together but the drum only is not played play is in plays such as “Hachi noki” and “Youchi-Shouga” play. In addition, a deformed haya-bue may be played depending on the song. Kyogen’s haya-fue is a simplification of haya-fue of Noh, and is the place where it is played in scenes that crucian carp spirit in “Kanjin Sei” play (Kae-Ai of Noh “Shirohige” play) appears.
