What’s Eisa EXPO?

Eisa Expo 2016 aims to forge an “Uchina identity” through Eisa and create a robust Eisa network. The event offers a program where you can enjoy both traditional and contemporary Eisa performances at the same time, and a history exhibition for learning about the origins of Eisa, along with the cultural exchange facilitated through Eisa.
