Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Bangladesh, the Embassy of Japan will organise a concert by "AUN J Classic Orchestra" in Dhaka on October 15 to promote friendship between the two countries.

Japanese traditional musical instruments such as Wa-daiko, Shaminisen, Koto, Shakuhachi, and Shinobue, are all the instruments of the AUN J Classic Orchestra, which are usually not played in an ensemble.

The troupe was formed in 2008 by seven renowned artists who specialized in each instrument in pursuit of unique musical experiences. Their technical quality and performance level have been highly acclaimed around the world, said the Japanese Embassy in Dhaka in a media release on Tuesday.

This time six of them are coming on tour to Dhaka. A twin, Ryohei and Kohei Inoue form a performing duo, "AUN," playing Wadaiko and Shamisen.

This is their first overseas performance since the start of Covid time.

Audience will also watch fantastic collaborations with renowned Bangladeshi artists; Shahtaj, Shiblu, and Rezwana Choudhury Bannya.

Although the concert is on an invite-only basis, anyone can watch the live streaming of the show through Facebook live (6 pm on October 15).
