Does anyone know which songs are particularly associated with Hiroshima and surrounding areas?

Hi Brian,

Not sure how your Japanese is, but this website lists the minyo from Hiroshima prefecture:

I never thought about it before, but Hiroshima doesn't get a lot of recognition for min'you. I couldn't think of a single song from the prefecture off hand, but two songs pop up in most of my min'you anthologies: "Atsumori san" and "Mihara Yassa". I've got very basic sheet music for those and two others - "Ondo funa uta" and "Hiroshima Sakazukuri uta" - that seem like they'd be nice shakuhachi pieces. I'm not sure what the policy here is on this sort of thing - should I post the links?

I need some songs because I'm supposed to do a new composition based on melodies from the area.

Ah, here are a few YouTube clips to get you started, then.
No one seems to have posted any studio recordings, but you can get the melody from these anyway:

"Mihara yassa" festival clip with music:

Does anybody know if any of the komuso temples and related honkyoku were in or near Hiroshima?
