Drums of Japan, Ryu Shu Taiko Japanese Dance & Martial Arts Multicultural- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Dance
The traditional Japanese Folk Dances and the Martial Arts moves known as KATA, provide a glimpse into the unique YAMATO DAMISHI -SAMURAI SPIRIT-. This spirit has pervaded Japanese culture for hundreds of years and still influences the Japanese today as seen in the popularity of Samurai based Anime & Manga; as well as the countless martial arts studios-dojos- throughout the world. Accompanied by the thunder of the Taiko drums and the elegant sounds of the Koto and Shakuhachi; Karate & Kendo Kata are performed with Samurai Swords, and flying fists and feet. This is juxtaposed with the refined movements of classical Japanese dance. The influence of the martial spirit can be seen in these refined dances as well as the energetic movements of traditional local village folk dances. This program is presented by the Ryu Shu Kan and sponsored by the Japan Center at Stony Brook University's Community Outreach programs.
