Okinawa Uta: Chikyū no Kaze o Kanjite (おきなわうた ~琉球の風を感じて~, Okinawan Songs: Feel the Wind of the Earth) is Rimi Natsukawa's 6th compilation album released on November 25, 2009 (2009-11-25), and her second compilation album to centre on an Okinawan song theme.[1]

Song sources[edit]

Almost all the songs originate from Natsukawa's first three album releases (2002–2003): Minamikaze, Tida: Tida Kaji nu Umui and Sora no Keshiki. There are three exceptions: "Basi nu Turi Bushi" is from her "Michishirube" single (2003), "Matsuri no Ato Kaze" is from Umui Kaji (2007) and "Densaa Bushi" is from Uta Sagashi: Request Cover Album (2007).

The two final tracks are bonus live recordings of songs from Minamikaze.
