Hello, we are the London Okinawa Sanshinkai!
We would like to let you know about the Eisa workshop at SOAS on 24–28 September and the Eisa performance at the Japan Matsuri on 29 September.
Eisa is an Okinawan traditional dance. Young people in Okinawa usually perform it during the Bon festival (お盆) in Summer.
The members of the Sonda Eisa group (Sonda Seinen-Kai), one of the most famous Eisa groups, are going to visit London, and the Eisa workshop will take place at SOAS from 23 to 30 September.
In the Eisa workshop at SOAS, you can take Eisa lessons (drums and/or hand dance), and you can even perfom Eisa at the Japan Matsuri at Trafalgar Square!
If you are interested in Okinawan culture and traditional music and dance, please contact us!
