♦Songs that touch one's heart and soul
Overtime, everyone might inherit from one’s ancestor’s way of life, and have similar views, ideas, and way of thinking without knowing it.
However, that sensibility people inherited from them seems to be greatly influenced and changed by the environment and encounters with people in one’s daily life.
I’ve had various meetings with lots of people as of today and those encounters nurtured me a lot. One of the greatest encounters was with a tango diva, Ms. Anna Saeki. I understand that experts of Argentine tango dancers always struggle to convey their feelings with dance. That is why the tango is a dance expressed by the person’ s sensibility.
I have been watching the way Anna pursues and expresses her philosophy of “songs convey her feeling” which greatly influences people’s sensibility. Everyone has a rich fundamental essence, which can heal, encourage and cheer other people. The encounter that brings out those essences from the inner self –
I think that is the most important thing in life. I hope you will have such a meeting in this concert. I believe strongly that the door for the individual sensibility opens wider and you begin to love yourself more than ever.
here is a saying, "Enthusiasm moves people.
" Whether or not it actually happens depends on how real your enthusiasm is.
I met Anna Saeki, and learned that she was driven from within to have passion and motivation to move forward to the endless possibilities.
I had no interest in music 20 years ago, so I did not know anything about Anna Saeki then.
As human beings, I think that we all face times when we stand at crossroads, and our lives can change, depending on the encounters we have.
I believe what kind of encounters we have depend upon whether the energy that we exude is positive or not.
Anna Saeki shares her passion and feelings at her concerts.
"Do not give up your dream."
"Do not decide if it will be or not."
"Continue wishing for what you want in life."
"Do not put a lid on your endless possibilities."
I am moved by the passion that Anna shares with everyone through her music....
When my mind became positive, I found myself surrounded by more people with a similar mind-set.
Whether or not we make our lives positive or negative depends upon ourselves. Anna Saeki conveys this message through her music as she goes beyond languages and performs at concerts all over the world.
In addition, bands have made requests to play for Anna, and often come from overseas for Anna's concerts.
I believe that the "Era of Anna Saeki" has started.
She is not only a tremendous singer but also someone who can convey truth through her music.
Anna Saeki Tango Preservation Society would like everyone to enjoy Anna's positive energy and Anna's voice which was described as, "Like perfume," by Horacio Ferrer, a great poet in Tango music.
Let's move forward to the future and repeat Anna's cheerful slogan, "Gattsu! Yossha!!"
