WHO WE ARE
WHat we do
We share our passion for Eisa with audiences of all sizes.
The best way to share our passion for Eisa is in person! From local festivals to the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC, we love to show the world our "Kokoro Spirit".
We provide an interactive and diverse cultural experience.
Ryukyukoku Matsuri Daiko MA promotes Okinawan art and culture in our community and our membership. We seek opportunities to introduce Okinawan culture by performing Eisa and through cultural presentations.
We build bridges.
Ryukyukoku Matsuri Daiko values the connections between people, even across oceans. We enjoy our friendship with the worldwide RMD community, Okinawa, and our local community. RMD has branches in seven other countries.
Feel the powerful beat of the unique sound of the Ryukyu Kingdom (Okinawa).
We hold weekly practice Eisa (Okinawan drumming and dance) in the greater Boston, MA area on Sundays. We work hard, support one another, have fun, and learn about Okinawan culture. No previous experience is necessary and all are welcome. If you are 18 years of age or older, contact us using the link below to learn more.
『チュバチに五十人の友達ができる』is Ryukyukoku Matsuri Daiko's slogan: Simply by joining, you will make 50 friends at once.
