Fukushima traditional folk dance “Kansho-Odori” meets techno!
Send us your cool remix to be played at the public demonstration in Berlin!
Sayonara Nukes Berlin is planning its third anti-nuclear public rally “Kazaguruma Demo” on March 7, Protected content . Our motto will be: “Vegesst FUKUSHIMA nicht! (Remember FUKUSHIMA)”. We will march through the city center of Berlin to remember the lesson learned through the Fukushima disaster and call for a nuclear-free future. To show our respect to the culture that the people in the Fukushima region embrace, we will dance one of their traditional folk dances “Kansho-Odori” in our parade.
The music that is used for the “Kansho-Odori” dance is a popular folk song from Fukushima called “Aizu-Bandaisan”.
Berlin has a leading club culture and the city is the birthplace of the “Love Parade” as well. We would love to see this seemingly-old-fashioned folk music like “Aizu-Bandaisan” remixed and revived into a cool techno dance music and presented in the city. Protected content
