We always feel it is very important to convey an important message to the people who listen to our music and also enjoy our theatrical performances. With "The Terra" we want to share the message that we are all together on the same spaceship, Mother Earth, the beautiful blue planet. Present-day mankind is harming the earth too much and she has gotten into a critical situation for all species. And now we are facing a difficult time. We have a deep responsibility to take care of the earth for the sake of future generations. Japone Artists dedicate "The Terra" to our beautiful planet with our prayer for love and peace for mother earth, nature, and people. More information can be found on our music page.

Happy New Year! We have arrived in 2022 and we decided to share our best wishes for this year in a special video. Please take a look and share your wish for this year as well in the comments!

Let's introduce our guest performers! Misaki Yamada (on the left) is a pianist from Japan and studied with W.Brons at Conservatorium van Amsterdam and graduated with a masters degree. Since then, she has been mostly active with teaching many students and giving regular concerts in and outside the Netherlands. She is also a manga artist as well, so, therefore, margin the culture between western music and Japanese manga is her life work. About performing with Japone Artists at Heroes Made in Asia 2021, she said: "What an honour to join to very unique group Japone Artists this time! I hope to give some special enthusiasms and memorable time from the stage to you all great audiences. Looking forward!" Aristos (on the right) is a professional martial arts stage performer, but that may not make clear what exactly he has in store. Aristos shared a message with us to explain a bit: "Hello, my name is Aristos. I have a great passion for performing and martial arts. A lot of people think of fighting when they hear martial arts, but it couldn't be less true. Martial arts has fighting but also music, dance, mythical creatures and so much more, during my performance I want to show You a part of my view on Martial arts. Now sit back and enjoy, see you soon!" If you want to know more about Aristos, please give a look at his Instagram profile.
