The bride, Erika, is from Uruma-city Okinawa, Japan where many traditional and contemporary Eisa groups are located. Erika wanted to celebrate her wedding by representing her heritage, and we were able to bring energy and best wishes for her special day.
Because of COVID, some of her family could not attend the wedding, though professional photographer Tokio captured wonderful moments of the event.
2021 Eisa pageant
What is the "Eisa Pageant"? RMD wanted to share the excitement of Eisa and Okinawan culture with everyone, from kids to adults. In 1993, RMD held the first "Eisa Pageant" at the Tomari Bridge in Naha-city, Okinawa, Japan.
In 2009, RMD officially named and started "The World Special Eisa Pageant," and asked Japanese and overseas branches to be part of it. This is an opportunity for the worldwide community to connect and about 4,000 people participate in this event each year. On the event date, the earth is the stage and participants dance with live music from Okinawa while live streaming to the public as well.
This year, we had a total of 9 participants performing a song with RMD MA.
