Lucy’s Ichariba Amigos! is a weekly radio programme on Okinawa’s FM Uruma (Yuimaru Radio FM 86.8MHz) hosted every Wednesday at 3 pm by the Okinawan-Peruvian singer and sanshin player together with her fellow musician Nao. The show runs for 55 minutes and is presented in Japanese but also with Spanish translations by Lucy. It introduces a lot of themes, topics and information from Okinawa and Lucy also plays live music in the studio.
Yesterday I was asked to join the programme through Skype in order to answer some questions about my involvement with the new movie Karakara, which is released in Okinawa in January, and I had a good time talking with Nao and Lucy. It’s the second time they have invited me to their show. They also introduced the Karakara theme song ‘Tumi Dumi’ written by Yukito Ara and performed by Sakishima Meeting. The show is available through an internet live stream and previous shows are archived:
