The Awa Dance Festival is held as part of the Obon Festival in Japan. Awa Dance is the largest dance festival in Japan, attracting over 1.3 million tourists every year.
Groups of choreographed dancers and musicians known as ren dance through the streets, typically accompanied by the shamisen lute, taiko drums, shinobue flute and the kane bell. Performers wear traditional obon dance costumes, and chant and sing as they parade through the streets.
Last year at AN there was a TON of theft. I’m not trying to scare you guys, but I’m KINDA trying to scare you guys. $10,000 worth of Taiko Drums were stolen. $200 and a full wallet was stolen from my friend, right as she was paying an artist in the artist alley. After the con, I heard of numerous other stories of theft from the official facebook group and tumblr as well. What can we do to combat this?
Keep ALERT. I know it’s tough because it’s Anime North and everyone is super hyped and we aren’t really in our right minds at a convention, let’s face it. We need make a conscious effort to know where our wallets, bags, and purses are at all times. I don’t want to hear any more stories of theft this year! So keep watch!

I GIVE UP FIXING THIS. HERE YOU GO! This was stupidly difficult to write and I’ve hit a writer’s (composer’s?) block D: I’m kind of looking for a beta to help me keep track of the theme? So if you want to volunteer, then please send me an ask because I’ve kind of wandered now XD
Thanks guys! Enjoy!
Interesting information which you may or may not want to read:
- This is the first piece I’ve genuinely despaired over. I have never written for brass before (as you can probably tell XD) and the repetitive G was driving me insane but as it was supposed to represent Germany keeping the kingdom together and driving it forwards, I couldn’t really get rid of it!
- The theme for this song was ‘military’.
You may download this and use it for whatever you want ^-^
