Traditional Ryukyu royal court music

17 May 2013
 

Traditional Ryukyu royal court music played by Ryukyu (Okinawa) Band: Chinese folk song "Outside Screen Window" sung in Mandarin.

沙呀纱窗外,
月呀月影斜。
映照在梁上,
哪个睡得着。
寂然独坐呀,
相思啊相思

Outside screen window,
The moon glows at a slant angle,
Reflecting on the beam from the roof below,
Making me awake watching the motion of its shadow.
So I sit up in the bed, alone,
Thinking of you -
My love who touches my soul.

And Ryukyu's love is certainly not Japan.
