Waka (ワカ)

Noh plays are made up of numerous segments, and Waka is one name for these segments. Waka are typically sung right after dance segments. They are traditionally structured in 5-7-5-7-7, like Waka (tanka), but there are exceptions. The first syllable of the Waka may also be sung before the dance, depending on the type of Waka.
