Okinawan Folk Music in Koza

Kozue Chinen sings Okinawa folk song with sanshin

Last month, a small Okinawan folk music concert was held in Koza (Okinawa City). It was an outreach and fund raising event for TERURIN Festival, the free Okinawan folk music event, which will be held on April 17th. You can take a look at some photos from the last year’s festival HERE and HERE.
