“Shuri Castle” Reconstruction Support Program ~ Enhance Your Company’s CSR while Learning to Play Okinawan Music as a Team

Region :
Okinawa Islands
City :

Music is one of the most charming parts of Okinawan culture. Join a special session with Okinawan musicians, divided into four teams in charge of the Sanshin (three strings), Sanba (percussion), Parlank (frame drum), and Shima-daiko (Okinawan drum) that participants will learn to play. Using picture-based, easy-to-understand teaching materials, instruction starts from the basics and will culminate in an ensemble performance of a complete song. At the end, you will take home a Bingata-zome original tapestry dyed with an image of Shurijo Castle and marked with the name of your company.
