Okinawan Yostudake Dancers
One of the most widely known tradtional dance in Okinawa, Japan.
This graceful and elegant dance is characteristic of the unique, classical Okinawan dance. The costume consists of a flower dead-dress and of “bingata” – a kimono dyed in array of brilliant colors. Dancers sound the “yotsudake” (4 bamboo pieces) to the slow song of joyful performance.
