Asia Sound Bazaar '99

By: Kotoko Chinen

Date Posted: 1999-03-26

If you're looking for a great way to spend this Saturday afternoon, why not drop by Kaneku Seaside Park for the Asian Sound Bazaar '99, in what is shaping up as one of the best concerts of the year. And talk about drawcards, Asia Sound Bazaar '99 has them all.

Some of the biggest names in the Okinawan music industry will be on stage from 6p.m., including the island's very own icon, the Rinken Band, along with fellow musicians from Okinawa, China, the Philippines, and Malaysia. Also appearing will be various recording artists, including Bayang Barrios, winners of the Hanoi-ASEAN Vocalists Festival Award.

Presented by the Daiei Group, Asia Sound Bazaar '99 aims to provide the audience with a greater appreciation of Asian music plus the chance to sample its rich and colorful diversity. For three solid hours of rock, Asian hops, and much more, you're invited, at no charge by the way, to dance and get into the festive spirit at Asia Sound Bazaar '99.

The bazaar, however, will be much more than simply an evening of great music. Even before the concert starts, a children's Eisa Dance will be performed from 3p.m. to 6p.m., and for those kids who like a little more action on their day out, an amusement area will be available. Workshops at the park will also give those with a penchant for creativity the chance to participate in making hand-made toys and hand-made toy shamisen, or Okinawan guitar. Food vendors will also add to the festive atmosphere, supplying cool drinks for the mums, dads and the kids, alcohol for the grown ups, and a great selection of local food for everyone.

It's often said that music is a universal language, and Asian Sound Bazaar '99 will be no exception. So circle March 27 on your calendar right now for Asian Sound Bazaar '99 and get ready to rock to some great Asian tunes, and enjoy some fantastic cultural activities. I can't think of a nicer way to spend a Saturday evening.

And don't forget! The bazaar opens at 2p.m.; the children's Eisa Dance starts at 3p.m., and the concert kicks off at 6p.m. Admission is free.

Directions to Kaneku Seaside Park: Take Route 58 and head toward Kadena. After you pass the "Toyzrus" sign, make a left. Then go straight along the street, you'll see the park right in front of you. It adjoins the Navel Kadena Shopping Mall.
