We posted about the concert they held in Okinawa back in June of this year and now it looks like they’re heading to Oahu, Hawaii with a workshop. Let’s hope a concert will happen here too. *hint* 😉
Loochoo Nu Kwa: Children of Loochoo
Workshop on Okinawa’s music and dance as connected to its history and culture
When: Saturday, August 25
Registration: 4:30 p.m.
Workshop: 5:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Where: Jikoen Hongwanji Hall, 1731 N. School Street, Honolulu
Presented by Ukwanshin Kabudan, sponsored in part by Young Okinawans of Hawai‘i
This workshop will help you to understand the importance of music and dance in the history and culture of Okinawa. You will also hear the urgency to preserve and perpetuate the Ryukyuan traditional legacy as presented by Norman Kaneshiro, Eric Wada, and the Ukwanshin Kabudan members who have just returned from an emotional visit to Okinawa. If you have ever wondered about what it is to be Okinawan, or how you can strengthen your identity, this presentation will help you to understand.
