      The Gift of Dance:

      An Okinawa- Manila Performance opens Philippines-Japan Friendship Month







      Okinawa and Manila have been enjoying special relations for hundreds of
      years and significantly, Okinawan migrants have settled and
      consequently still enjoy a harmonious life in Manila.



      In line with this historical background, the Japan Foundation, Manila
      (JFM) and the Embassy of Japan, in cooperation with the City of Manila
      and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), present
      Okinawan Buyo: An Okinawa- Manila Joint Performance惻featuring the
      Sinaglahi Dance Troupe and the Okinawa Culture Society, on July 3,
      Thursday, 7:30 PM at the Philamlife Auditorium, UN Avenue, Ermita,
      Manila. The special performance formally launches the month-long
      celebration of Philippines-Japan Friendship in July.



      The event features an Okinawa dance troupe composed of prominent
      musicians - including a national artist, will showcase Japanese
      classical court and folk dances. The audience will undoubtedly be
      presented with the cheerful arts of Okinawa which is a fusion of the
      best art styles of Okinawa's longtime trading partners - China and
      Southeast Asian countries. The said performance of the Okinawa Culture
      Association will be complemented by performances of Philippine folk
      songs and dances by the Sinaglahi Dance Troupe.
