Okinawan Folk Music
Okinawan Folk Music
Okinawan folk music is called Ryukyu minyo. The archipelago’s top minyo joint, Shimaumui, is owned by the islands’ most famous traditional singer, Misako Oshiro, who regales mostly elderly patrons in her basement bar. Her music often features taiko drums and a sanshin, a three-stringed instrument with a base sheathed in snakeskin.

4-6 Higashimachi, Naha, 81/(0) 98-866-0234. This appeared in the June/July 2013 issue.
