(Below, a statement from our representative Yuki Kondo.)
Recently I think, “Yeah, music is great!”, and about the power and potential of music. I am constantly inspired by the depth of music on many occasions. From a young age I always had music in my life, and now I fully realize how great it was to have music as a pivotal aspect in my life.
Recalling, through music my world expanded greatly, and I learned to persevere through practicing instruments, and by achieving something through coordination and cooperation, I learnt how to create what I thought was a masterpiece.
This was brought about especially because of growing up overseas in a country with a different culture and race.
What I learnt from that as a young boy, was something so precious and priceless.
Recently I get involved with projects interacting with elementary school kids overseas and creating music, but with just instruments, just songs, I feel bliss with the feeling environment, and time, and feel at ease day by day.
And something I feel every time a project or an opportunity like this arises, is the infinite talents and the great taste shining throughout the children, and the power of music that bring these qualities out. I honestly am astonished by the power of music.
My daughter, who is three-months old, immediately smiles and laughs when listening to music and songs. Recently, she is singing the theme to “My neighbour totoro”.
