On October 10th EvCC held a incredible taiko drum show! These performers are part of a taiko drum group called Okinawa Wakati-da Chinjinshuu that came all the way from the japanese prefecture of Okinawa! The performances were beautiful and fun to watch. One of my favorite things there was the performance using the Okinawan lion costumes otherwise called Shishimai. If these creatures bite you traditions tell that you’ll have good luck for the rest of your life! And the cups they were using for the tea were compostable! Big thanks to Okinawan Kenjin Kai Chijinshuu for hosting them in Washington State!
