Shoukichi Kina ~ Live show and new release

Last night Shoukichi Kina gave a ‘Talk and Live’ performance at his club Chakra in Naha. The main topic under discussion was the problem of debris from the nuclear radiation areas of Japan following last year’s earthquake and tsunami. The live music which bookended the discussion included the inevitable ‘Hana’ (which he sang twice) and ‘Haisai Ojisan’ but also a lovely version of the song ‘Omoibana’.

Afterwards Shoukichi gave me a copy of his new album Nirai Pana which is to be released next week on the 15th May to coincide with the 40th anniversary of Okinawa’s reversion to Japan. This long-awaited album is his first release for eight years and a review will follow sometime soon on this blog.

    I have started wondering if I should wait for your review and then decide to buy the record.
