I had a question. What is the deference between 浄瑠璃 JYOURURI,常磐津 TOKIWADU and 義太夫GIDAYUU?
I read a book "知られざる芸能史 娘義太夫", by 水野悠子, 中公新書.
According to this book 浄瑠璃 is a shamisen music 三味線音楽 where singing, dialogue and narration are united.
There are many kinds of this, including 義太夫,常磐津,清元,新内,一中,河東.
Wow! The doubt melts.
I would like to see 娘義太夫.

I thought I didn't know them - 昇吉 and 吉幸-. But I found out by looking at the old leaflet of 寄席. I saw them in 上野広小路亭. It was in 2008 that I saw 昇吉. He was 前座. Then, I saw 吉幸 in 2011. He belonged in 立川流. 
People have a history.

I saw sit-down comedys yesterday. One was ”ピカピカピン”, at 西新宿ミュージックテイト. The other one was "深夜寄席", at 新宿末廣亭.

"ピカピカピン", I though this event dose not have people. But that was "つ離れ".

”深夜寄席”was crowded. But there was no standing. 太鼓 and 三味線 were a live performance.

I heard good news. The women's only 落語会 starts new. It is ”落語ガールズ!”. I want to go the event.
