While my impressions from the 13th, and 14th at Akasaka Blitz still linger,
After the first campaign events for the release of the new albums,
The day before yesterday I was in Kasama city, in Ibaraki prefecture.
Yesterday there were
In-store events in
Mie prefecture, Matsusaka city, Gifu prefecture, Ogaki city, and Mie prefecture, Yokkaichi city.
There was a lot of traffic congestion while I was en route in the car, so everyone is Ogaki and Yokkaichi, where the start times were drastically delayed, I am very sorry!
A great number of people kindly participated in the events.
Thank you very much.
Akasaka Blitz Concert
I conveyed my thoughts on the 13th in my previous blog entry.
I will write a little about the 14th.
The 14th was a TOSHI HEALING concert.
It changed suddenly from the rock of the day before.
The stage set was rearranged to have a beautiful drape.
Warm, powerful floral arrangements filled up the stage, and chairs were lined up. It was completely transformed into a healing concert hall.
The musical performers were
Katherine Cash on violin.
She was the arranger on the current TOSHI HEALING mini-album, “Itsumademo,” and she was the English translator for the new T-EARTH album “TRUTH” as well as the vocal coach for our English pronunciation.
She is naturally a first-class musician.
Ebihara Shinji on keyboards.
He arranges T-EARTH’s music and he’s one of T-EARTH’s recording musicians. He’s also a member of T-GAIA, and he is naturally a very fine musician.
With those dispositions, the friends I consider to be family graciously supported me from behind.
And the guest singer was WANKU.
With the exception of the Dinner & Concerts this was her first public performance.
It was really a very emotional concert.
After the concert ended,
The leader of the music world, Yukawa Reiko graciously paid a visit to the dressing room.
“I definitely understood what it is you want to do, it was a good concert. Especially WANKU’s unique outlook on the world; in the whole world, I’ve never heard a voice like hers” were the compliments WANKU received from her.
I really thought that way as well.
WANKU’s singing voice is the one and only, one of the world’s most original voices.
Therefore I want to transmit WANKU’s song to the whole world.
Everyone please give WANKU’s new album one more listen.
I am singing my own praise but it really is awesome.
By the way, like Yukawa Reiko’s words,
I’ve condensed everything that I have cultivated over the past 10 years, and while cherishing it I will continue in this direction. I think I clearly, and plainly expressed this over those 2 days.
Everyone who kindly participated at Akasaka Blitz, thank you very much!
All of the Akasaka Blitz concert staff, thank you very much for your hard work!
And all the members who performed thank you very much.
Especially the members of T-EARTH, whose daily growth I came to know, I really depended on them, and it was a happy study.
I think the obedience they hold, their modesty, and other inherent qualities will continue to increase.
