Ryukyu Bushi Composed by Patrick J Burns. For Concert Band. Published by Daehn Publications. (Catalog # DP200304)

Based on a Japanese folk melody from the Ryukyu Islands where the martial art of karate originated. This dramatic little tune appears throughout the piece, sometimes accompanied by clapping, sometimes by tenor drum, triangle, tambourine, and cymbal. Your young players will enjoy playing this exciting little piece as much as they'll like saying its title (REE-oo-KEE-oo BOO-shee) .
