Tokyo 2020 NIPPON Festival
SHINJUKU BUNKA CENTER (Tokyo)
The kocarina is a traditional wooden 0karina. Developed by Japanese musicians and craftsmen, the kocarina is evolved as an instrument for its rich and wide-ranging sound. Children, including local elementary school students, will perform a concert and play kocarinas made from trees that were cut down during the rebuilding of the national stadium, the venue for the Summer Olympic Games. In the face of the Covid-19 crisis, children around the world play the kocarina in order to regain peace in the world as soon as possible.
