In co-operation with the Department of East-Asian Studies (field Japanology) of the Comenius University’s Faculty of Arts and the Japanese Embassy to Slovakia

Interactive musical events will be held at BIBIANA, where people may dance and sing along with Mrs. Akiyo Chiba from Japan. The performed Japanese songs have such names as The Bus, Hide and Seek, Puppies, Elephant, Okaori Kotor, but also Let's pull the turnip, Little Cherry  and Yuuyusikake). The soprano Akiyo Chiba is a music pedagogue at the Yamaha piano-school in Tokyo. She took part in the recital at the concert hall of the Wiener Musikverein as well as the Vienna based Festival of Sacura-Wood and she organizes a concert tour to schools and kindergartens in Vienna, but also throughout Taiwan, presenting Japanese songs in the spirit of intercultural communication and understanding. In 2014, she came to Slovakia for the very first time and since then, she performs for Slovak children on a regular basis. In spite of not speaking each other's language, we make friends through music. This is the artistic motivation of Mrs. Chiba.
