Messages from asianbeat colleagues!(11/14)


    Pantene Nakajima (Dispatched Artist, Fukuoka)

    01_☆thumnail_green_button_final_80x80.jpgパンテーンナカジマasianbeat, congratulations on your 10 year anniversary!

    I am so grateful to asianbeat for all the various support it has offered to my live performances in Busan and Thailand!

    Speaking of Asia, whilst feeling the culture and music of different Asian countries other than Japan running through my veins, the experience I had working with the staff and performing with local artists was an excitement akin to being involved in a kind of revolution. I used these experiences, as well as the musical activities that I now take part as a means of really communicating and engaging with other people in a major way!!

    I am grateful to organizations that carry out activities in Fukuoka, which is known as the gateway to Asia, such as asianbeat, that are in many regards bridging the gap between Asia and Fukuoka.

    I am hoping to see you flourish even further moving forwards to your 20th and 30th anniversary! I too will do my best to transmit more and more music from Fukuoka to the world.

    In 2006 and 2007 asianbeat dispatched the Fukuoka-native rock band "velvet peach seven" to the "Fat Festival," one of the biggest independent music events in South East Asia. They were also sent by asianbeat to perform in Korea at an event that was held to encourage musical exchange between Fukuoka and Busan, spread top quality pop music from Fukuoka to the rest of Asia, as well as to contribute to stimulating cultural exchange through music.
