I’ve been meaning to blog about this site for awhile (but you know how that goes) and better late than never, right? The Metropolis website has a handful of pretty good reviews/interviews with artists from Okinawa. Although there are a few small parts where they can be totally off (they misspell Toru Yonaha’s name twice — in two different articles — as “Yoneha” and “Inaha”) the articles are great reads for those of you who are interested in Okinawan music.
I did the legwork so all you have to do is click on any of the links below. I broke away from Karakui tradition (heh) and made it so that the links will open in a new window (or right-click on the link to open it in a new tab). 😀
- Sadao China
- Yoriko Gankeo with Chuei Yoshikawa
- Toru Yonaha
- Soul Flower Mononoke Summit
- Ryukyu Underground 1, 2
