A Collection Of Okinawan Upbeat Music!
ペルー生まれペルー育ち。両親共沖縄系の沖縄三世・LUCY(ルーシー)が歌う、沖縄から日本を、そして世界を元気にするため、カチャーシーを中心としたアップテンポの曲で選曲したアルバム「HIYAMIKACHI(ヒヤミカチ)」。
2011年10月13日~16日に那覇市を中心に開催される「世界のウチナーンチュ大会」に参加する世界中から集まった人々に沖縄から元気になるCDをおみやげで持ち帰ってもらいたいという願いから企画されたアルバム。
タイトルの「ヒヤミカチ」とは、沖縄の方言で「エイ!」と気合を入れるという意味で、1曲目の「ヒヤミカチ節」は戦後、沖縄の復興のために作られた曲であり「どんなときでも心を合わせて立ち上がり沖縄の名を世界に知らしめよう!」というメッセージの込められた歌です。
今回の「ヒヤミカチ節」には新たにルーシーの母国語であるスペイン語の歌詞も付け加え、その他、「イチャリバチョーデー(出遭えば皆兄弟)」の歌詞で有名 な「兄弟小節」、東日本大震災からの復興を祈り、「村興し節」も収録。「豊年音頭」では、沖縄のブラジル太鼓集団「B.B.B.」主宰の翁長巳酉が参加 し、沖縄のエイサー太鼓とブラジル太鼓のコラボレーションも聴き所!
