Abstract:This thesis explores the history and significance of Wakayama Ryū Edo Bayashi as it relates to the broader musical performance art of taiko. Wakayama Ryū Edo Bayashi , or simply referred to as Edo Bayashi , is a musical repertoire of festival music that is taught and performed by the Wakayama Ryū, a school of traditional folk performing arts based in the shitamachi area of Tokyo. By examining the historical connections between practitioners of Edo Bayashi and the modern genre of kumidaiko , this thesis outlines the pathways that led to the transmission of Edo Bayashi to the United States and constructs an intercultural history of the music. Furthermore, the musical impact of Edo Bayashi on other taiko music is discussed through the analysis of taiko compositions that have borrowed musical materials from Edo Bayashi. Finally, this thesis examines the significance of the transmission of Edo Bayashi to the United States by exploring the theoretical possibilities that Edo Bayashi poses to the field of ethnomusicology via discourses of authenticity, nostalgia, and identity.
