We are here to share information on our performances, as well as provide you with insights into the rich performing arts heritage of Okinawa.

Because of the current influences of Japan and the world in Okinawa, there is much change happening within the music and dance world. The focus is no longer on the preservation of traditions, and it is this that the Ukwanshin Kabudan looks to preserve. There is continuing research and study of protocol and customs, which are passed down thorugh the members. The troupe has also performed in Okinawa to a sellout crowd, as well as within Hawai'i and most recently, Seattle, Washington.
