"Women of the Heike Monogatari". (http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/
One website I looked at claims that Imayo songs were set to the tune

I found a book called "Songs to Make the Dust Dance" by Yung-Hee Kim,
which is a translation of a collection of Imayo songs.
It looks like you might have the most luck by finding out the names
of the dance and music styles they favored and looking for books on
