Ondekoza and Musicians on a Worldwide Tour Through March 2012
New York shows:
-March 5th at the UN Assembly Hall in the UN Headquarters
-March 6th at the Lincoln Center (Rose Hall)
On the first anniversary of the Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami, a worldwide series of free concerts has been dispatched to convey the Japanese people's sincere gratitude to the global community for its tremendous outpouring of support. On Tuesday, March 6 at 7:30 PM, The Japan Foundation will present "Overcoming the Disaster: Gratitude from Japan to the World," at Rose Theater, Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center on Broadway at 60th Street New York City. The event features noted musicians from Japan of various genres, including artists from Tōhoku, the region most greatly impacted by the disaster. 

The Japan Foundation is the organizer of this New York concert and the entire worldwide tour. The aim of the concerts is to show that Japan is steadily heading towards recovery with a new "Kizuna" - bonds of friendship - with the international community. The Japan Foundation writes, "We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the global community for their tremendous support....Through this project, we wish to convey a message from the citizens in the affected areas to the international community about how important and encouraging it is for those in difficulty to receive signs of solidarity from the unknown global community. At the same time we wish to show that we also stand by many other disaster victims and refugees around the world, thus sharing a heartfelt prayer for peace among all peoples."
