Flowers Will Bloom Project

Dear Baylor students, faculty, & staff;

Interactive Media and Language Center invites you to participate on the Virtual Choir/Music project, “Flowers Will Bloom.” In remembering the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami which brought an unprecedented scale of damage to northeastern Japan, Hana wa Saku, or "Flowers Will Bloom", was produced to support recovery in disaster-hit areas. We encourage you to sing “Flowers Will Bloom” (https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/flowerswillbloom/) and record it in your phone. Instrumentalists are also invited to play the melody on your instrument. IMLC will put the songs together and share them on YouTube.

The soundtrack can be found here - https://youtu.be/SlU62d-uK04 . Just sing along as you play this track in the background. Here are some examples in your language.
