Hi, I’m from Brazil and have seem some of your cohreographies on You Tube.
I liked very much the Samurai. There’s any way that I could get the music of the Samurai?

Thank you for looking us up on YouTube and this website ๐Ÿ™‚ We really like Samurai, too! It is one of our favorite dances to perform!
Unfortunately, we cannot give out the music due to copyright issues.

Have you heard of Uraja? It is similar to this dancing style- the music is also quite similar. It is done in Okayama- and danced during the demon festival. Okayama is where Momotaro, the peach boy, was born and this is the festival honoring his battle of the demons.
Here is a video of one of the many teams dancing outside of Okayama Station during the festival:
Totally off topic but: Do you have a site where one can buy the festival music you use?

Hi, I am a primary school teacher in New Zealand, and I have a (small) soran dance group here at our school. Is there any way of down-loading your videos to be able to save to dvd, for teaching the children in my group?

I am with Metropolitan Community College-Longview in Lee’s Summit, Missouri (a suburb of Kansas City). We have an annual Discover the World International Arts Series in our Cultural Arts Center for our students and community. This past year we focused on Africa, Brazil and China. This coming year we hope to focus on Japan. Fran Lemery referred me to your group. I would like to get information on the cost and availability of your group. We are looking at Friday, March 4, 2011 for the performance. Please feel free to contact me at (816) 604-2217 if you would like more information or would like to discuss this possibiltiy further. Thank you.
