Resonance: A Tsunami Violin Concert.
This concert commemorates those who lost their lives in Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami on 11 March 2011. It is a reminder that many people are still suffering from the disaster, and that we could still be of some help.
The concert features a tsunami violin, made from debris left by the tsunami on the seashore of Rikuzen Takata, one of the most devastated areas. The sound post of the violin is made of the nearly 280 year-old ‘kisekino ipponmatsu’ (the miraculous lone pine tree), the only survivor of 70,000 pine trees on a 2km-long coastal line. The tsunami violin may evoke images, emotions and memories of great loss, but it is a symbol of resilience and hope.
Performer: Kana Ohashi (Violin)
