Kumiodori is a theatrical performance where a story is carried out using Lyrics (Ryukyuan Poem), music (Ryukyuan Classical song) and dance (Ryukyuan Classical dance). It was created with Okinawan's indigenous performing arts and traditions as its basis, with influences from Noh and Kabuki in 18th Century.
