Outer Tokyo Songline is a project to re-envision the city through songs, by taking folk song and folk art approaches. Focusing on the outskirts of Tokyo, where even now traditions thrive, the project will turn the sounds and actions born from the various activities of the city into songs. People’s lives were filled with song, from rice-planting to lumber gathering, and ballgame songs – while people moved hands and talked, they sang. Charlie Takahashi and his friends will travel around the city just like a travelling troupe, turning various Tokyo sights into song.
The third workshop will take “The Senju Tale” and “Sansa Dance” as a central focus to practice newly-created songs. There’s absolutely no problem if you haven’t participated in prior workshops. Anyone can participate.
*Please look at the “Everyday Soundtown BLOG” to get an idea of what the previous two workshops were like.
