MAI FUJISAWA AUSTRALIA PREMIER TOUR 2019
14 - 16 November 2019
Mai Fujisawa is a Japanese singer and lyricist born in Tokyo. She made her debut on screen at the age of 4, singing Nausicäa Requiem from her father Joe Hisaishi’s soundtrack to Studio Ghibli’s earliest film Nausicäa of the Valley of the Wind. In 2018, Mai Fujisawa was on tour with “Joe Hisaishi Symphonic Concert: Music from the Studio Ghibli Films of Hayao Miyazaki” as a solo vocalist, playing a key role in its successful productions in Paris, Melbourne and Silicon Valley.
In 2019, Mai will have the first and ever solo concert tour with piano accompaniment and the backing vocals in Australia. The performance includes prominent songs and OSTs, such as ‘Reprise’ from movie Spirited Away – one of Ghibli’s most popular films that took out Best Animated Feature in the 75th Academy Awards, ‘Ponyo’ from Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea and ‘Carrying You’ from Castle in The Sky. Mai Fujisawa’s heart-wrenching vocals are loved not only through Japan, but also around the world – they are natural, distinctive and beautiful.
