Amamian Folk Music
Amami would not be the same without shima uta: a traditional form of island folk music. The two go hand in hand, and there is nothing like marrying the local food, liquor, and awe-inspiring music of the Amami Islands. They say a picture can speak a thousand words, but shima uta offers a million emotions. Seeing is believing and adding a live performance to your stay will surely create a trip to remember.
