Okinawan Folk Music – Bashofu


“beautiful song of the homeland…mountains so green, skies so blue…beautiful people too”

Umi no aosa ni
Sora no ao
Minami no kaze ni
Midoriba no
Basho wa nasake ni
Te o maneku
Tokonatsu no kuni
Washita shima Uchina

Shuri no kojo no
Ishi datami
Mukashi o shinobu
Minoreru basho
Midoriba no shita
Washita shima Uchina

Ima wa mukashi no
Shui tinjanashi
To-o tsumugi
Hata o ori
Jono sasagete
Asaji kunji no
Wasita shima Uchina
