Repertoire for The Spring Season

 The Spring season is coming soon, and I am trying to focus on practicing repertoire which I will perform.

This season,  I plan to perform the Sanshin and sing a song  called "Shima No Hito Yo" composed by Suguru Ikeda. This will be the first time I perform the song in the public.
I like both music and words of Shima No Hito Yo, and I decided to perform the song.

Shima No Hito Yo (島の人よ)

「生まれ島を離れ暮らす島の人よ 
覚えてますか 生まれ島の祭り唄を
大きな夢を都会に描く島の人よ 
強く育てたあなたの島こそが夢の島よ
島の人よ又いつの日か祭り咲かせてみようじゃないか
島の人よ又あの海でサバニこいでみようじゃないか
島の人よ又いつの日か故郷咲かせてみようじゃないか
島の人よいついつまでも生まれ島を忘れないで」

Make Up Lesson

There are many lessons involved with the performing arts; 
dressing costumes, dancing, singing, learning language and history and
 make up.
Actually, stage make up is my favorite lesson.

The photos are samples of the female character
of the Ryukyu dance.

Please join my program on March 10, I will demonstrate how to do stage make up for you.
