To mark the two year anniversary of the Tohoku Earthquake in 2011, Imperial College Japanese Society and Universities of London Japan Society have worked in conjunction to hold a concert, in remembrance of those who suffered and are still suffering due to the earthquake and tsunami that devastated the Tohoku region and to raise money for the Japan Society Tohoku Relief Fund.

As well as supporting those still affected by the Earthquake, the event’s focus is to celebrate Japanese culture and music and promote them to a wider audience as well as to provide a social scene to unite those interested in Japanese culture.

Various professional and amateur artists from London and Japan have volunteered to perform, bringing their sensational Japan-inspired music (Shimauta, film music, Jpop etc) and dance to the stage.

Through this event we are aiming to raise money for the relief fund throughout the week in the Universities. Half of the profit of the tickets and all the profit from the raffles will be donated to the Japan Society Tohoku Relief Fund. (The other half of the ticket profits will be used for event expenditure)

Special Guests:
Jun Okada is a singer-songwriter playing the guitar.  Two original albums ‘Anemone’ and ‘Nemureru Mori’ were released in Japan.  She has performed at many events such as Japan Underground and Japan Matsuri in London and Japan since 2003.

Masumi Saito is a movement artist.  She has carved a unique path owing to her expressionistic and cathartic dance style, having presented work on a number of internationally acclaimed platforms such as ICA, RCA Gallery, Tate Britain and The Tanks.

Chapa Ou plays didgeridoo- the oldest wood wind instrument in the world, which has been made famous by aborigines in Australia.  He has travelled the world to develop his own unique style of music, performing on the streets of Brixton and Camden.
