Music Scene
This spring, many live performances and music related events have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak and it has affected many artists in the entertainment industry. Though it has been disappointing for many of us especially the fans, we think that this is the time to create some positive vibes! Filled with inspiration and motivation, we decided to start a new special feature "Music Scene!!! - featuring artists with links to FUKUOKA! -", focusing on young and talented artists with links to Fukuoka! Here you will find many information of artists whose music is recommended by music professionals involving in the music culture of Fukuoka, such as Kurita Zentaro. "There are many artists aspiring to develop their career from Fukuoka to Asia, or even to the world. I am looking forward to seeing the charm of Fukuoka's music scene being introduced to the world," Mr Kurita said. The special feature will be translated into multiple languages, with the hope that it will serve as a foothold for expanding into other Asian countries and regions. Can't wait for the events and live performances? Check it out to find out more about the passionate artists of "The City of Music: Fukuoka", we will be updating regularly! (Editorial Dept.: Non)
