“We love Music”

In 2016, we were introduced to an NPO managed by a Japanese individual whose activity resides in the Cebu Islands of The Philippines.Hosting free-of-cost music lessons to local children of various backgrounds, is NPO Seven Spirit. They have the vision to expose each child’s potential through musical activity.
We received a request to create a promotional video for them. However, as costs would be incurred, it was difficult to take on as a simple production.
Therefore, we discussed the possibility of a project that we had been nurturing. This was the start of the WORLD FESTIVAL LABEL.

Every day, many children visit and gather at Seven Spirit. Their age, upbringing, and domestic environment are all different. There are children living in poverty, those living on the streets, and even those who can manage and afford to go to school. However, from the poetics that they all wrote, we felt it contained similar, if not the same message.

We love Music.
With the power of music, our lives shined brighter and became filled with joy. Meeting friends, companions, and others with the same dreams and hopes…

The lyrics and melody which directly reflected on the words and ideas the children envisioned, was filled with the dreams to spread one’s wings to the world, their love of music, and their gratitude to one another. WORLD FESTIVAL LABEL’s first project was a song filled with the pure message and emotions of those children.

”Music, It’s Our Life”

I’ve had so boring days
I don’t know what to do
my life was just so plain
which way should I go

since I met the music
all things has been changed
music makes me happy and became part of me

I love music it’s my life
and now I’m full of precious days
sharing smiles with my sounds
together singing to the world

I felt alone and scared of people
I was in able to trust other things
no experience and confidence
so could not believe myself

since I met the music
my world has been changed
I have found myself and met my true friends
I love music it’s my life
and now I’m full of precious friends
music gives me power of smile
together singing with one voice

I would make you happy with my voice
I’d travel around the world with your heart
I hope to reach my dreams by my own feet
I hope my loved ones be proud of me

we love music it’s our life
you can be whoever you want
let’s fly into another place
together singing to the world

La La La…

Cebu Music Project with Yurina Maeda Cebu, Philippines / Tokyo & Hokkaido, Japan

Based out of The Philippines, actively involved in cultivating the life skills of children through music and physical education, is NPO Corporation Seven Spirit. With the cooperation of this organization and the approximately 60 children of various circumstances (street children, slums, middle-class, etc. and around 3 to 18 years old) who attend, we together conducted a production of the song with the theme, “A message aimed towards the world.” and planned to distribute and sell it to the world. This is how we banded together.

For the children, who regularly only learned how to play instruments during the class, writing the lyrics and composing was a newfound experience. With their thoughts and talents, potential laying as the foundations, there was created a sign of their existence and life. In creating together in what would be sold to people overcoming barriers such as national and cultural borders, the experience was truly special, and sparked much confidence for the future in the children.

From on after this experience, even if the people who were involved in this project leave to pursue other lives, as long as this song exists, they will always know that they existed in this world, and “created together” beyond various barriers a piece that will always be in their hearts.

Displaying their charming smiles and their almost-fiery potential, and with the natural attraction and beauty of The Philippines, engulfed in happiness. This is the song production with connection to the world.
