Ichi Hanno, Okinawan band from Santo André, Brazil.

Visit their site, Ichi Hanno, and listen to samples of their work, “Kui Nu Hanna” and “Uminchu.”

Ichi Hanno is a band that describes their style as world music because its essence is basically traditional and modern music from Okinawa with percussions used in Brazilian music, with African roots, and rock in all its aspects. The members are Brazilians, descendants of Okinawa who met at parties in the Okinawan community in Brazil. They decided to invest their musical potential in the production of traditional Okinawan music with a new look, including guitars and percussion. They are currently finishing their first album entitled Mandinga Utina (Okinawa Magic), which will in addition to versions of popular songs of Okinawa include their own compositions.

Ichi Hanno
Ichi Hanno, é uma banda que se enquadra no estilo world music, pois sua essência é basicamente musica tradicional e moderna de Okinawa (província japonesa), percussões usadas em músicas brasileiras com raízes africanas e rock em todas suas vertentes. Os integrantes são brasileiros, descendentes de Okinawa e se conheceram em festas da comunidade okinawana do Brasil. Então resolveram investir suas potencialidades musicais na produção de musicas tradicionais de Okinawa com nova roupagem, incluindo guitarras e percussões. Atualmente estão finalizando seu primeiro disco intitulado “Mandinga Utina”, que terá além das versões de músicas populares de Okinawa, composições de autoria própria.
