 いつもソウル・フラワー・ユニオンのライヴでお目にかかっていたのがシカラムータの大熊さん。その彼から結成15周年ライヴのフライヤーを受け取ったのが今回の取材のきっかけだが、バンドについての知識は皆無。実に申し訳ないんだが、以前、彼から受け取った『ゴースト・サーカス』を聴いていただけで、メンバーのことなど全くチェックしていなかった。ところが、会場に入って楽屋を覗くと、見慣れた顔がほとんど。ライヴの最中に、ご本人もおっしゃっていたんだが、「まるで渋さ知らズ」だというのに驚かされる。そうかぁ、そうなんだぁ... と、どこかで納得しながら、撮影を始めていた。

 始まりはチンドン太鼓を中心にフロアからステージへ。そして、ステージではベリーダンスをやっているという女性が3名、ときおり演奏に花を添えるというので、写真を見ていると、やはりどこかで『渋さ』を想像してしまうかもしれない。が、大所帯の彼らが混沌としたアナーキーさを経てエネルギーの流れを生み出しているとすれば、シカラムータにはもっと調和の取れたアンサンブルを感じるといえばいいだろうか。もちろん、メンバーの数が圧倒的に違う両者を比較するのは、どこかで無理がある。が、その混沌を『渋さ』がエネルギーに転化しているとすれば、シカラムータは強烈な個性を持つ細胞が確信の下にエネルギーを収束させている感じがした。

 なんでも実験的要素を多分にはらんだエスノ・ジャズ、エスノ・ブラス的な言葉が使われているようだが、ジャズ・ベースにチンドンから東欧に南米を飲み込んでて紡ぎ出したのが彼らの音楽。が、なによりも興味深いのは、そういった様式を遙かに超えて、地に根を張って生きる人のエネルギーを感じることかもしれない。個人的には聞き慣れたヴィクトル・ハラの名曲、「平和に生きる権利」やアルバート・アイラーのカバーが印象に残るんだが、それはたまたまオリジナルを知っていたからだろう。

 これは偶然にしか過ぎないんだが、このライヴの数日前、たまたま目にしたテレビ番組で取り上げられていたのが反骨の詩人にして、辻演歌師であった巨人、添田唖蝉坊。実はバンド名の由来など全く知らなかったんだが、彼の墓が画面に出た時に、その意味がわかったという次第。彼らの公式サイトに記されているんだが、墓碑銘には「A CICALA-MVTA CHE CANTAVA ELAS VA MOGLIE CHE L'AMAVA」(歌を歌った声なき蝉と彼を愛したその妻に)と書かれてあり、声なきセミがバンド名となる。添田唖蝉坊もヴィクトル・ハラもアルバート・アイラーも、もちろん、シカラムータも同じところに根を張っているということを充分に思い知らされたように思う。
