Tokushima Children Choir

It’s unusual that I post on my channel clips from other performers but this footage from a show that I attended was one of the most fascinating musical experiences that I witnessed. This is the children’s choir of Tokushima, Japan. I love choirs and vocal harmonies and this brilliant performance really touched me. I am also posting this clip, hoping that some of my dear viewers would help me to find more music from this fantastic group. This choir came to Portugal to celebrate almost half a century of the relationship between Japan and Portugal. I learned from this show that it was also our ancestors who transmitted many of the European musical traditions to Japan for the first time. I hope that you enjoy this excerpt of the show and, especially for our Japanese friends, that you could send me more information about this beautiful musical group. Thank you!

  1. Hello Miguel! I am a former member of the choir and ran across your post. I had the privilege of being part of this exact tour and this exact performance. This video brings back so many incredible memories of my days in the choir and I’m sure all the other girls feel the same. I don’t know if you’ll ever see this, but I would like to thank you for posting this video.

    1. Dear Lee,
      Thank you very much for your beautiful surprise. I never though I would be receiving a message from a choir member all these years after. I thought your performance was so special from the show in Coimbra, where I live. It was a coincidence that I was in Lisbon for the next show and when I found out I instantly wanted to go and see you again, also so I could keep some videos for me. I’m glad I did. The music and the presence of your Choir still holds on to me with a unique feeling. I’m very happy to hear from you!
