Started in July 2020, Pasona Group gathered musicians from all over Japan to revitalize the region through music. They provided an environment where musicians, who were facing a difficult time during the pandemic, could work and pursue their music activities with peace of mind. Currently, about 60 musicians, including pianists, violinists and composers, are active on the island, and in addition to performing music activities at various facilities operated by the Pasona Group, they also plan various concerts and music events through collaboration among members. They are practicing a double-career work style on Awaji Island, which is “Music x Work”.
One group interviewed a drum player and a saxaphone player, and the other group interviewed a singer and a dancer. They learned how the “Music x Work” lifestyle works on Awaji Island and how happy they are to be able to continue to pursue their musical interest and live a stable life by earning a living there.
