Usual Japanese traditional songs have common pentatonic scales like as Asia/Africa traditional songs.

Okinawa has unique traditional scale like this.

This song "SHIMAUTA:Song of Island" is made by non-Okinawa person and this song is not fully in Okinawa scale but just "based" on Okinawa scale. Subtitles are in Okinawa dialect and not good for learning Japanese.

Here are traditional Okinawa Songs.

Language makes Culture and Culture makes Language.
