Travel with us to the country of Japan where we visit with 3 leaders within the music ecosystem. Individuals and organizations around the world had to quickly adapt as COVID-19 hit in 2020, and Japan's music industry was no exception. Learn how artists and stakeholders have been and continue to handle the global pandemic, along with what the Japanese government is and isn't doing to support them.

About the Podcast

Amplify Music Communities
Local Music - Emerging from the Pandemic Globally
Music is changing locally around the world. Enjoy our Community Conversations with music leaders in cities, regions, and countries throughout 2021. And please get inspired from the panel sessions from the Amplify Music 2021 conference that we will roll out over the next few months. What is Amplify Music? Amplify Music began as a quick virtual conference in April 2021 to capture stories and challenges of local music early in the pandemic. We gathered 39 sessions of conversations across 25 hours in April. In April 2021, we gathered conversations back together for AM21. Please enjoy past recordings and the future Amplify Music Communities episodes.
