Part 4 and final part of the episode 'Tairano Kiyomori' from the classic narrative 'Tale of the Heike'. The common version is comprised of two hundred such episodes, themselves divided into phrases which have a fixed singing manner. Between these phrases other melodies are played on the biwa. The tempo and mode and each musical phrase are all strictly regulated. Heikebiwa played an extremely important role in the development of Japanese narrative music.
