One year ago on this pandemic, Bunka Wave established one yearly day to recognize, celebrate, and shout out the meaningful musical and artistic contribution from Asia to Latin America: Asian Music Day. A radio marathon to link up two continents in a cultural tie throughout via online streaming from Bunka Radio.
The first edition of the Asian Music Day demonstrated why it is important promoting and be visible the Asian music trends in Latin America, and vice versa. There are the results: 16 non-stop and non-ads on live streaming in Bunka Radio; 29 Asian artists representing the music stages from Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, Taiwan, and China; a historic debut from Bangkok Music City network showing the highlights from Thailand, and Music Dish China about Chinese music scene; 12 Latin artists from Colombia, Chile, Peru, Mexico, Ecuador and Argentina; and, finally, 6,000 listeners and followers engaged with this radio event interacting in our social networks and our streaming platform.
