The sounds, dances and colours of Japan were front and centre on a stage in Winnipeg on Sunday.
The drum and dance group Karakoro Eisa brought around 70 performers from Okinawa, Japan to the stage at the Winnipeg Art Gallery.
“The music will be familiar to some people, and on the other hand, they are more contemporary in their presentation,” said Art Miki, who helped organize the show.
“So we are seeing the old and new Japan blended together.”
“The members of our community would not see anything like this for a long time,” he said. “So it’s a real treat for us to have the kind of music that they will be performing.”
