Comments from Yasuhiro Yonehara, First Secretary, Embassy of Japan in India
Walking through the streets of India, one can hear music along with the bustling of the city. In Bollywood films, actors can be seen dancing joyfully to upbeat songs. Indian people are very familiar with music, and I feel that music is an integral part of their lives. How exciting it is when Indian children pick up a recorder, an unfamiliar instrument, learn to play it and create music. I sincerely wish that this initiative, which is making this possible, will be a huge success.
