Sunday, April 21, 2013 | 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM   
16500 South Western Avenue, Gardena, CA 90247
Please join us on Sunday, April 21, for the Okinawa Association of America's Spring Concert & Fundraiser! Browse through our yard/rummage sale (many new/unused items), purchase andagi and Okinawa soba for lunch, and enjoy an entertainment program featuring traditional Okinawan music and dance, karate, hula and Polynesian dance, and more! PRESS RELEASE: “Dī tiganē sabira!” translates to “let’s help out!” in Uchinaaguchi, one of Okinawa’s six unique languages. Outside of the Los Angeles Okinawan community, the Okinawa Association of America, Inc. (OAA) may be best known for its Uchinaaguchi class and of course its andagi (also referred to as “Okinawa dango”). South Bay residents often flood and buy out the andagi booths at Obon Festivals and the OAA’s annual October Bazaar, a reaction that the OAA hopes to achieve with their upcoming Spring Concert & Fundraiser on Sunday, April 21. The OAA’s Spring Concert & Fundraiser will benefit their weekly computer classes and the Worldwide Youth Uchinanchu Festival (Wakamono Taikai) on July 18~21. The Wakamono Taikai can be best described as a 4-day conference for “next generation” Uchinanchu (Okinawans) ranging from 18 to 35 years old, with programs that emphasize Uchinanchu identity, strengthen the global Okinawa community, and explore ways in which the younger generations can keep alive the Okinawan traditions, arts, history, and languages. At April 21’s event (free admission), the OAA will be selling homemade andagi as well as Okinawa soba and taco rice (literally taco ingredients over rice; a popular cross-cultural dish in Okinawa). Another highlight of the event will be its lunchtime entertainment line-up of young performers to promote the “next generation” theme of the Wakamono Taikai, featuring: Yoshiaki Chinen (sanshin), Choichi Kai L.A. (sanshin), Shigeru/William Logan (jazz instrumental), Ryukyukoku Matsuri Daiko L.A. (eisa/taiko), Ai Teshima (hula & Polynesian dance), and traditional dancers Sayuri Kinjo, Amy Ono, and Akiko Yamauchi. The OAA will also have the pleasure of hosting local artists from F*ART (Free + Art), hula students from Hickory Elementary, and guest performers from San Diego: Ashley/ Brandon Arashiro (karate) and San Diego Warabi Eisa (eisa/taiko)! (performances subject to change) The Spring Concert & Fundraiser will be held at the OAA Center (16500 S. Western Ave. Gardena), 11:00AM~2:00PM (entertainment begins at 11). Admission is free. The OAA highly recommends pre-ordering andagi ($3 for 2) and Okinawa soba ($7) because these items tend to sell-out quickly. Tented tables and chairs will be available for eating during the free entertainment program. Please contact the OAA at mensore@earthlink.net or 310-532-1929 to place your orders.
