An important part of Okinawan culture is the act of celebrating the Okinawan culture. As usual, this is best viewed on full screen with the sound up.
I found this footage from the 5th Uchinanchu Festival on YouTube, and thought you might like to see something of Okinawan culture that isn't about karate or kobudo.....and yet!
I'm not sure who the singer is...but I like to think of him as the Chris Rea of Okinawa. Who is Chris Rea I can hear some of you ask!
Go find out!
