Ainu Band

Filed under: — Andy @ 3:55 am

My friend from Okinawa is in Tokyo at the moment so last Saturday we met up and went to a live show in Yokohama. The band name was Oki Dub Ainu Band. For your information, the Ainu people are the indigenous people of Hokkaido much like the Native Americans. They band played some really traditional looking instruments, and played some of their traditional songs. However, they also mixed in a drummer and base guitar to make a great merger of old and rock. It was very intersting to listen to.
