Sorry Okinawa, but today my heart is in Indonesia!

This community gamelan group practices at the Geidai arts university in Naha. The director, Ryosen Kameshima, plays in the Gender Sanshin Trio. Since the Indonesian music scale is so similar to the Ryukyuan music scale, they sometimes add sanshin to their ensemble. So pretty! I can’t wait to go back.

Wow, you got to the school! I can see why you’re thrilled. Will you be able to join in?

Yep, the director invited me back. It took about 2 hours to get there from Okinawa City though, so I’ll probably only go to one of their two weekly meetings.
