Eijin Nimura composes a music video dedicated to World Oceans Day

On 8 June, the Japanese violinist and UNESCO Artist for Peace Eijin Nimura created a video in line with the annual World Oceans Day

The purpose of this day is to celebrate the oceans, and to raise awareness among the general public about the crucial role they play in our livelihood, as well as the various ways people can help protect them. This year’s theme of UN World Oceans Day is Innovation for a Sustainable Ocean, especially relevant in the lead-up to the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021-2030.

On the occasion, UNESCO Artist for Peace Eijin Nimura joined underwater explorer and photographer Toshiaki Hirobe to create an informative video titled “Let’s Swing Happy Music for World Oceans Day”.

In this video, Eijin Nimura plays the Nocturne of Sibellus to convey the dark message that human activities have a negative impact on our ecosystem, while he plays Mozart’s Overture from the Marriage of Figaro to convey the optimistic message that the ecosystem which has been destroyed can be restored. In the end, he plays Benjamin’s Jamaican Rumba to accompany the beautiful and colorful photographs of Toshiaki Hirobe on marine creatures in the sea of Okinawa.
