Debayashi (Kabuki) (出囃子 (歌舞伎))
Debayashi is a kind of kabuki music played on a stage by performers. It is also called degatari (where the musicians generally appear in formal dress).
The music for kabuki is usually played behind a black bamboo screen on the side of the stage (geza music) except for Takemoto (gidayu) or on top of the raised platform at a stage for Kabuki Dance. This is called debayashi.
