On June 16, Social welfare corporation Network Sousei hosted a concert with Zimbabwean music group JENAGURU performing at Shuri Community Hall in Shuri, Naha. Zimbabwe is located in the Southern part of Africa, and the JENAGURU performs traditional music from that area.

About 150 people, including customers of the Sousei and children from Kindergarten Maaru, took part in cultural exchange through dance and music.

The JENAGURU consists of students from the JENAGURU Art Centre. They introduced drums and other instruments made of Ngoma tree and performed a traditional cerebration and rain dance. Participants clapped their hands in rhythm to the drums and the instruments, and enjoyed the concert. Daichi Nakahara remarked, “The drum rhythm was fun and I danced with the band.”
