Helping Fukushima get back on its feet with the power of music - activities of El Sistema from South America


El Sistema is a creative social education program which began in Venezuela. By giving children in impoverished areas wind and string instruments like violins free of charge, and teaching them how to play in groups, this program has rescued these children from a life of crime and drugs. El Sistema, which empowers children through music, has now spread to more than 50 countries around the world. In Japan, the very first program was launched in the city of Soma in Fukushima Prefecture. I spoke to Mr. Yutaka Kikugawa, who established Friends of El Sistema Japan to help with recovery efforts from the earthquakes and tsunamis, people who support this initiative, as well as the children of Soma.
