Geino-Bu (Performing Arts Committee)

The Geino-Bu, under the auspices of the OAA, was officially established in November of 1987 with the spirit of unity and cooperation to perpetuate, preserve, and disseminate the cultural performing arts of Okinawa. The Geino-Bu is comprised of OAA members of various sanshin, koto, taiko, folk singing, and classical/folk dancing schools. Activities since the establishment includes nine show casings of “Utayabira, Wuduyabira” with the entire membership of the Geino-Bu for performance at such theaters as the Japan America Theater, James Armstrong Theater, and various Japanese community centers with the proceeds earmarked for a certain purpose. The Geino-bu has also participated with performances in the Nisei Week Parades, museums, educational institutions and other Japanese community organizations. However, our priority and main goal is to help out at the OAA sponsored events, and as such has participated and assisted annually at Shinnen Enkai (New Years Party), Fujin-Bu (Women's Association) and Seisonen-Bu (Activities Committee) events, Undokai/Picnic, Kansha no Hi (Senior Citizens Appreciation Celebration), Bazaar and many others.
