Okinawan Avant-Garde Night

August 30, 2019

There will be an Okinawan Avant-Garde Night in London, UK, on Thursday 3rd October. This is presented by MYM at Rich Mix arts centre in Shoreditch. Taking part will be Okinawa’s Mutsumi Aragaki (vocals, sanshin, electronics, audio-visuals) and UK-based Japanese/Swiss singer Mina who plays sanshin and violin. The pair will be joined by Japanese dancer Yu Tamura who will also be familiar to Power of Okinawa readers as a member of An-chang Project.

The trio will give a music and dance performance that offers an avant-garde approach to ancient sounds and tales from Okinawa.

“By blending songs, stories, images and movements together with Japanese performing artist Yu Tamura, this new collaboration invites the audience to discover the unique and rich culture of Okinawa with a highly artistic perspective.”

More details can be found on the Rich Mix website.
