PEACE AND HEART SONG CONCERT
  "Peace and heart song concert" is a charity event occuring annually beginning from 2001.  These days, there are wars and atrocious crimes, so in this event we'd like to plant the seeds of the peaceful mind through the music. 
  Many people were made victims of the terror attack on 9.11.  And the retaliatory strike by the U.S. began in October.  Many innocent Afghan citizens became victims and lost their families and homes.  And in Japan, the cruel crimes are increasing everyday.  Have the people lost "the human heart" that they had before?  - A love for the family, sweetheart, friends and neighbors.  Now, we must regain the "heart" for everyone.   We must recognize the importance of the human heart in each of us.  We should  begin from one person to everyone in the world.
  Has music no power against war or crimes?  We do not think so.  Though music can't change politics or society quickly, it can send the message "Love for humanity" and it sounds quietly but surely in the people's minds. 
 In this concert, we play "the heartful song" which is born in the common people.  The performers and the audience can touch the heart of the song together.  We'd like to spread the peaceful and gentle mind through this concert.
   Finally, a severe winter is felt in Afghanistan.  Perhaps many people's hardship will continue and some will become refugees.  So in this event, we collect contributions and send them to the Afghan refugees.

War is not the answer and for only love can conquer hate.  - Marvin Gaye

Plant seeds of the peaceful mind through music!
