Momoto magazine feature

The quarterly magazine Momoto is published in Japanese in Okinawa and focuses on life and culture on these islands. For issue number 6, which has just been published, I was asked to write a feature on Okinawan music. The article –  ‘The Soul of Okinawan Music’ –  is published both in English and in a Japanese translation.  It’s also available to read now on the Features page of The Power of Okinawa website. The Japanese translation can be found by clicking on the link below the title. The article includes some quotes from interviews with musicians Tetsuhiro Daiku, Bob Brozman and Tatsumi Chibana. The complete versions of these interviews are in The Power of Okinawa book.

Momoto is sold in many shops around Okinawa and the magazine’s website is at
