Event Navigation

yuyukai2Come and experience the sights and sounds of southern Japan at an Eisā Demonstration and Teaching with the Okinawa YuYuKai. Sponsored by Indiana University’s Traditional Arts Indiana and funded through a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, this free event will feature YuYuKai members of all ages who will introduce Okinawa’s distinct regional culture and history.

The Indianapolis-based Okinawa YuYukai has shared many traditions over the years with Indiana residents, including Okinawan language, music, and dance. One dance in particular is Eisā, a kind of energetic, powerful drum-dancing from Okinawa that is now performed all over the world. The YuYuKai will present a teaching forum on Okinawan culture and a demonstration of Eisā, followed by a chance to learn Eisā from YuYuKai members.
