NDL Historical Recording Collection (Rekion) published new English article

“The Popularization of Rōkyoku through Records.”

“From the latter half of the Meiji era (1868-1912) to the middle of the Showa era (1926-1989), for little over a 50 year period, rōkyoku (naniwabushi) were enjoyed enthusiastically in every corner of Japan, and were hailed as “the king of public entertainment”. Records played a key role in their popularization.”
