The cultural heritage of the 500-year-old Okinawan fishing village Itoman comes to life when Ukwanshin Kabudan presents Washita Ichiman: Our Itoman. Tomoko Uehara (lead vocalist for Rinken Band) and dance master Atsuko Tamagusuku (founder of Udui Fukura dance company) make a rare appearance outside Japan to perform the songs and dances of their childhood.
