 なぜかチューニングさえをも演奏の一部だと思えてしまう津軽三味線の大野敬正が、かけ声と共に演奏に入るたびに、観客からレスポンスが生まれ、津軽の波のようなうねりを感じさせる彼の演奏も、江戸情緒たっぷりのうめ吉の踊りと三味線も大いに受けている。しかも、この日はプレス関係も詰めかけているようで、自分がMCとして話している言葉を書き留めている人の姿も目に入った。

 そして、「本当の浪曲を聴きたがるんだよねぇ... こっちに来ると」と笑いながら語っていたのが国本武春。といっても、残念ながら、それほどの時間は与えられていない。ということもあり、その片鱗を見せるにとどまるのだが、三味線1本で、ブルーグラスはもちろんのこと、ブルースからロックンロール、しかも、ハモニカを加えて演奏するなど、器用なところを見せてくれる彼はここでも大うけだった。とはいっても、浪曲師の両親の元に生まれ、伝統的浪曲師でもある彼がこう語っていたのが印象に残るのだ。

「いやぁ、日系の人たちに、ただ懐かしいといって喜んでもらっているだけじゃダメなんですよ。それだったら、昔から両親がやってきているから。どこでも満杯だったらしいですよ。でもね、この音楽をアメリカの人たちにきちんと伝えていかなければいけないんですよ」

 その通りだろう。今も生きる音楽として、そのヴィヴィッドな魅力を真正面からアピールするために企画されているのが今回のツアー。それでも、日系人だけではなく、おそらく、三味線や三線を体験したことのないアメリカに住む人たちが、この夜を楽しんでくれたのがなによりの勲章だったと思うのだ。
