Japan Australia Joint Concert from ONE ASIA, AUN J's effort to combine Japanese musical instruments with traditional melodies from all across Asia, began in 2013 with a performance at Angkor Wat. This performance led to a series of concerts which made its way all across Asia and has now made the leap to Australia, where we hope you enjoy the new combination of traditional sounds that we bring to you now, as Japanese instruments are accompanied by the Australian didgeridoo.
The group, formed in 2008, is made up exclusively of performers of Japanese musical instruments. These eight Japanese artists, each of whom is a master of their respective instruments, create an enjoyably unique brand of music which feels both classic and new. Their balance of tradition with innovation has earned them praise from abroad, leading to the world's first live performance inside France's Mont Saint Michel Abbey, and continuing with a yearly live tour of performances at world heritage sites. Since 2013, they have been holding joint concerts revolving around the theme of "One Asia" together with an ensemble of 32 performers from 14 different countries and regions across Asia, returning to Japan for a performance in Tokyo in 2017. AUN J hopes to continue to try to connect the world through music by demonstrating the universality and diversity of culture.
