Tokyo Summer Festival

The theme of the 24th annual Tokyo Summer Festival is Forest Echoes/Desert Voices. This year’s Tokyo Summer Festival takes you on a musical journey through noisy forests and silent deserts. The event takes place from July 3 to 31 at various venues throughout the city.

Some of the events at this years festival include:

  • Performances by pianist and guitarist, Egberto Gismonti, a Brazilian who was classically trained in Paris,
  • A body painting and dance Workshop with Karajá Indians,
  • Traditional Tuareg musical performances from the Amazon,
  • Shinto Theatrical Dance, Toshita Kagura, will present ancient folk tales from Japan that date back more that 200 years, and
  • The finale will be a festive concert where the stage is given to the future generation of Japanese musicians along with past and present winners of the prestigious Arion Award.
