3.11 Message
The Japanese people have held a sense of fear against nature from ancient times, so we held festivals and prayed for abundant harvest and sound health. The core of the festivals have been the Japanese taiko and dancing. Japan is now in a serious situation, but as a musician, my role stays the same as before. I continue to communicate aggressively through music with people who possess different values, search for something we have in common and arrange it in a form of music and performance. Now, we must seriously accept messages from nature which support human activities and move on. I believe that this leads to being creative. Stay positive.
