The music for Miyazaki's films is composed by the Japanese veteran of minimalism, Joe Hisaishi, who can undoubtedly be considered Hayao’s co-author, as his melodies bring to life the fantasy worlds created by the prominent director.

The music for the film "My Neighbor Totoro" creates a sense of lightness and joy, conveying the atmosphere of childhood and nature. There are no negative characters in this film, as there is no struggle between good and evil. It portrays children who love their world, fear losing it, believe in fairy tales, and eagerly become a part of it.

Come to our concert to hear the enchanting music of Joe Hisaishi performed by the talented musicians of Simple Music Ensemble World. You can also become a part of this fairy tale and experience vivid emotions that will be remembered for a long time!
