Eisa 2014: Butterflies in the Midsummer Night

Girls in yukata with Okinawan castanets dance eisa at night

The girls of Nishibaru Youth Association dance Eisa with Yotsudake, a pair of Okinawan bamboo castanets.

四つ竹を鳴らしながらエイサーを踊るにしばる青年会(浦添市)の女の子たち。

Butterflies fly sensuously
in the midsummer night
in the days of the year
when death reunites with life

彼の世と此の世が重なり遭う
真夏の夜に
艶やかに舞う蝶たち
