Featured Event

OJA Flyer


Okinawa Jazz Association Concert

The Okinawa Jazz Association (OJA) has produced their very first recording, "Uchina Jazz," in the 51 year history of the Organization.

Since 1957, live jazz has been performed by the OJA on the island, but it has gone virtually unnoticed by the masses as of late. The OJA is about to change all of that with a commemorative concert to honor the history of the organization and to herald the release of the first ever recording of the Big Band Orchestra... shining a new light on the uniquely Okinawan form of Jazz that has formed here since the ending of the World War II era. Many foreigners have heard that there was live jazz being played here on Okinawa, but it can often be as elusive as chasing echoes to find out where it is going to be played and when you need to be there. more...
