Date Composed: 2007
Composer: Aki Takahashi
Arrangement: Aki Takahashi
Premiere Performance: December 1, 2007 - Ryerson Theatre

My first visit to Okinawa came as a big surprise. It was so different from the rest of Japan. I wrote this song to capture the feeling of the local language and the culture. The words came from an Okinawan children’s song about conversing with the moon. -Aki Takahashi
