AWIL/CC 82 - London Okinawa Sanshinkai

 Intriguing music from East Asia by London Okinawa Sanshinkai on this A World In London! Click here:  Taking their name from the 3-string, snake-skin Sanshin lute London Okinawa Sanshinkai play traditional music from Okinawa, the Pacific islands 640km south of Japan. Okinawa is famed for its beauty, a remote paradise which also boasts the highest number of centenarians in the world! Folk music here is still very much alive and taught in schools though it rubs shoulders with a foreign invasion of American pop thanks to the US military base stationed there since WWII. London Okinawa Sanshinkai formed in London a few years ago at SOAS and run weekly workshops for aficionados of Japanese music. Join Mina, Minami, Mark, and Yuiko from LOS on this A World In London and see them on stage in Spitalfields on June 25th at Okinawa Day!
