URGENT NEWS: CONCERT POSTPONED
It is with much regret that the Okinawa Association of America, Inc (OAA) announces that BEGIN’s September 1st concert has been postponed. The reason is due to delays in obtaining the group’s visas.
The OAA deeply apologizes to their sponsors, volunteers and the many BEGIN fans who were hoping to attend.
Rescheduling plans are currently underway.

Ticket holders can keep their reserved tickets for the rescheduled concert or get a full refund upon request by September 25, 2019. Please fill out this form: http://bit.ly/beginrescheduled
Straight from Okinawa for their very first mainland US concert, BEGIN takes the stage at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center on September 1st. This exclusive show is hosted by the Okinawa Association of America (OAA), which is celebrating its 110th Anniversary this year.
BEGIN has been serenading fans for nearly 30 years with their iconic melodies about their beloved island home infusing blues with traditional Okinawan music elements. Their songs convey love for their island prefecture, a deep respect for the land and nature with fond memories of their childhood. Their music prominently features the sanshin, an Okinawan three-stringed banjo.
BEGIN’s appeal stretches the globe from their home base in Okinawa, Japan to South America, Australia, Europe and North America. To date, they have released more than 35 singles, more than 30 albums and 8 DVDs. They released their latest album, “Potluck Songs” in December 2018.
OAA is pleased to share the beauty and spirit of Okinawa with BEGIN fans old and new. For more information on OAA’s SuperCentennial, please visit www.oaamensore.org. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @oaamensore.
The Okinawa Association of America (OAA) is a public benefit, charitable organization and its mission is to promote the Okinawan culture, to assist social and educational advancement of the members, and to contribute to local and international cultural exchanges.
