EISÁ – drum show  |  エイサー太鼓


Ryūkyūkoku Matsuri Daiko is a type of dance stemming from the ancient tradition of eisā (Okinawan drumming) that features a remarkable style of high kicks, karate movements and synchronised choreography. Young people in Okinawa meet at the summer eisā feast to honour their ancestors. Using drums of various sizes, they sing and dance and pray to the dead for good health and prosperity. The dancing is filled with positive energy and joy.
