The idea we came up with was “NHK WORLD presents SONGS OF TOKYO.” Over 2 nights, a number of globally-popular Japanese artists will gather to perform at NHK Hall in Shibuya, Tokyo. This performance will be broadcast internationally on NHK WORLD TV. Music representing modern-day Tokyo will resonate across the world. The program will be filmed before an audience during November 25–26 .
