Myanmar Music Concert: "Music from the Golden Land"

The Japan Foundation is pleased to invite Myanmar's cultural delegation (traditional music) comprised of Deputy Director General, professors, and students of the National University of Arts and Culture, Yangon, to Japan from June 26 to July 5, 2013. On this rare occasion, the delegation will give a Myanmar music performance, titled "Music from the Golden Land" in Tokyo.

Logo of 41th year of ASEAN-Japan Friendship and CooperationThe notion of Myanmar music may remind many people in Japan of the novel or film titled Biruma no Tategoto (The Burmese Harp).
This concert offers a fantastic opportunity to listen to a traditional Saing Waing ensemble. Centered on tonal percussion instruments the ensemble usually plays at festivals and at dance and theater performances.

It will also feature the Saung (or Burmese harp) and Myanmar dancers dressed in beautiful, authentic costumes.

Please come and enjoy this wonderful live performance of classical and contemporary Myanmar music!
