Some of you out there may have noticed that The Power of Okinawa website is no more. The site was set up to promote and sell the 2nd edition of The Power of Okinawa book which has now sold out online. However, the book is still available in bookstores in Okinawa and also in mainland Japan. It can also be bought through Paul Fisher’s Far Side Music website which is based in the UK.
It is almost seven years since the new improved and expanded 2nd edition was published and it will soon be 16 years since the 1st edition came out. This blog was set up to complement the book with updates and reviews. I will continue to post here about things Okinawan as well as other musics from around the world….. and anything else that takes my fancy. Some of the longer pieces I’ve written for magazines such as fRoots and Songlines that were available to read on the website will eventually appear on this blog in a new Features Archive category.
Many thanks to all those who bought the book online.
