The vocalists of MONKY MAJIK, Plant brothers, Maynard and Blaise, have volunteering in the disaster site soon after the quake hit on 11 March.
Although Maynard has been staying in a studio and Blaise has been staying at an office of one of his friends and other members have fallen in the same situation because their houses had been damaged, they prioritize volunteer work over repairing their houses.
Through the volunteer, they came to think it needs many people's support for a long time for the region to get back its beauty and they have decided to hold a charity concert inviting artists from the devastated area to spread support nationwide through music.
They named the concert "SEND AI " which has double meanings "send love" in Japanese and the name of their town, Sendai. They will continue this charity for people to remember this natural disaster.
They said, "We believe holding a concert in Hanshin District where was damaged by the 16 years ago earthquake and had achieved a comeback would spread support even a little bit. We hope many of you understand our purpose. We also hope to continue to get involved in this support activity with you.
MONKY MAJIK Charity Concert "SEND AI "
Date: 3rd July, 2011
Venue: Osaka Jo Yagai Ongaku-Do (Osaka Castle Open Air Music Hall)
All sales amount of this concert tickets will be donated to disaster victims through a public organization.
