Spreading the charms of Japan to the world from Fukui




There is the only salsa dance studio in Fukui city called Salsa Lab. Last weekend, I danced and played with a drum there. Conga drums are originally from Africa, but born in Cuba. Generic name of the drums are Tumbadora. When they arrived in America, they were mistakenly called Congas. Since then they are called Congas.


There will be an outdoor music festival, Park Life Festival at Maruoka Green Center in Fukui on Sep.20th.  The group called Drum Circle will be playing there.  I can't wait!!
