The J-Pop Exchange for Saturday, April 22, 2017



The J-Pop Exchange Earth Day Special!

Enjoy great music by Sakura Koshio along with an exclusive interview! The devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in 2011, resulting in radiation contamination issues in Fukushima, has been associated with Earth Day in Japan because it serves as a reminder of caring for our earth and managing its resources. The singer / songwriter Sakura Koshio, who is from Fukushima, has been very active in restoration efforts.

Plus, we'll spotlight two popular Japanese franchises that recently received American film adaptations. We'll have exclusive interviews with the original series composers, in addition to sampling their dynamic music! This includes Kenji Kawai, who serves as the original composer for the Ghost In The Shell anime movie.
