Mai Fujisawa is a Japanese singer and lyricist born in Tokyo. She made her debut on screen at the age of four, singing Nausicäa Requiem from her father Joe Hisaishi’s soundtrack to Studio Ghibli's earliest film Nausicäa of the Valley of the Wind. In 2018, Mai Fujisawa was on tour with 'Joe Hisaishi Symphonic Concert: Music from the Studio Ghibli Films of Hayao Miyazaki' as a solo vocalist, playing a key role in its successful productions in Paris, Melbourne and Silicon Valley.
This will be Mai's first solo concert tour with piano accompaniment and backing vocals in Australia. The performance includes prominent songs and original sound tracks such as ‘Reprise’ from the movie Spirited Away – one of Ghibli’s most popular films that won Best Animated Feature at the 75th Academy Awards - ‘Ponyo’ from Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea and ‘Carrying You’ from Castle in The Sky.
Mai Fujisawa’s heart-wrenching vocals are loved not only in Japan, but also around the world – they are natural, distinctive and beautiful.
