"Oklahoma Mixer" (Japanese: オクラホマミキサー, Okurahoma Mikisā) is a folk song.

About the music

The folk song is a version of an American folk song "Turkey in the Straw", dating back to the 19th century. It was popularized in the late 1820 and early 1830 by blackface performers. The composer of this folk song is currently unknown, with some sources says that it was deviated from an American ballad "My Grandmother Lived on Yonder Little Green". The Japanese arrange version of the folk song, "Oklahoma Mixer", got its more-known name (at least in Japan) by American music teacher Henry "Buzz" Glass, who learnt the dance from Larry Eisenberg in Norman, one of the cities in Oklahoma.

It was first introduced in the Taiko no Tatsujin series with Taiko no Tatsujin: Wai Wai Happy! Rokudaime and later on Taiko no Tatsujin Wii: Kettei-Ban.
