Nora Kura Musik - a new Youtube Channel 1pm every Tuesday (central european time) 2020-12-20

In this new channel, we deliver dialogues between Vienna-based opera singer Akiko Nakajima and a younger generation of musicians. Artists living in this era are fighting to survive. What is music for? Are musicians useful in the society? What will our future be? We have so much to think about today.

We chat in a friendly frank way, about our thoughts, life style, and deliver music. We hope you may enjoy it. *mostly in Japanese
