Bridging Cultures
・ "KMC was the fi rst step for me to be an international artist. ...sharing music with many
musicians from various countries, I think we could feel the ‘Building Bridges with
Music’ theme." - Blackuro (Osaka), KMC 2012 & 2013
・ "I’ve met more people from around the world at KMC than I have anywhere else in my
life." - Dale Campbell (UK), KMC 2009-2011
・ "It was truly amazing. We truly made lasting friendships as well as connections with
other musicians." - Robot Bomb Shelter (US), KMC 2010 & 2011
・ "It was a wonderful experience to see so many people from diff erent cultures joining our
African workshop." ?Olethabwekos (Kenya), KMC 2011
・ "I know I will continue to reap the benefi ts of playing in Japan for time to come! It was a
truly rewarding experience through and through!" - Norine Braun (Canada), KMC 2009
When I came up with the idea of KMC in 2008, a Japanese
search engine search brought up absolutely NO Japanese
websites with the phrase“ music conference,” but now 6 years
later the same search brings up pages and pages of sites.

Thus KMC has become not only an event that other aspiring events in Japan look to for
ideas, but also an event that musicians worldwide make plans to attend 12 -15 months
in advance. Though there have been mistakes made and problems encountered along
the way, in 5 years KMC has brought success and opportunity to the careers of many
musicians in Japan and abroad to experience new things, make important contacts and
of course, make money like no other event in Japan. Through its support base, KMC is
uniquely positioned to continue improving the industry for independent musicians, but
we need your continued support and participation. I truly hope that with the ongoing
theme of “Building Bridges With Music” we can all learn from each other and expand
our horizons together. Thank you again for your continued support.
