“QUITURE · BUDOU” is a folk performing art group dance representing the Miyako area where anyone can dance regardless of sex, age, etc. “Kuiya Boudoui” Kui means “voice”, char is “match”, Budwie means “dance”. Normally from nobody, sing out while clapping hands, gradually shake up the circle, swing both hands up and down, step on the ground, jump and bounce. At the beginning it is gradually, intensely, rhythmical, and at the same time, dynamically repeating “Dancing the earth’s dust and calling the clouds”, the quature is said to start with praying for rain. There is also a theory that interprets Kui as “begging” to God. It is said that the times went down, turned to entertainment of young men and women, singing and dancing through the night. It is said that the songs of Okinawa, Miyako and Yaeyama islands have changed from cursed songs to epic songs and lyrical singing songs. According to the record in the middle of the 17th century, when Miyako ‘s best shinjin mother – mother (UPAM) was appointed from the king, it was customary to sing “Ayague (song) and dance quetch” in front of the king ” · Budwi “is a singing act representing the Miyako. After the Pacific War, most of the settlements accompanied accompaniments such as Sanshin and Tsuzuko (shoji), costumes also began to devise each other. Born from the prayers of the people wishing fertility, it has become popular as the only entertainment, and has evolved into ethnic entertainment representing Miyako. Traditional quilts and creative quitchers, there are many distinctive regional quitars that are said to have as many quescias as there are in Miyako villages. Among numerous performances, “Kushiwa’s quetcher” is the Miyako exactly representative of Miyako that everyone can dance. I would like to widely convey the “quail of the water of the rain water” to the people of the main island of Okinawa and the tourists as well, even in Ryukyu Village I am introducing it in the road Jene. Please touch a part of the culture of Miyako in Ryukyu village by all means. At Miyakojima, we hold a quetch festival every early November. If you have the opportunity, please also feel “Quitcher · Budou” of authentic Miyakojima.
