The other day we saw a supposedly famous Okinawan singer, Yogi-san. She’s a prime example of classical music in a contemporary context.

She also offered a beginners’ lesson in kachashi, the traditional folk dance. This was after a full day of awamori taste-testing, so most of the people in this room are pretty soused.

Lo-res is the best res. Not really, but that’s all we’ve got for video.
