This year provides the opportunity for people from India and Japan to remember and celebrate the links between their great nations. Situated within the Asian sphere - India on the Western edge and Japan on the Eastern - interaction between Japan , China and India has grown since ancient times through trade, the arts and shared philosophies.

For Japanese people, often there is a feeling of recognition and immense pleasure in listening to sitar. This may have something to do with the commonalities in music and emotional responses that have developed throughout Asia over many years. As part of the India-Japan Friendship Year 2007 this concert, through the merging of Indian sitar and Japanese blues harmonica, provides another occasion for Indian and Japanese people to nurture and expand their warm relationships.
