Concept of "Gypsy Punk Opera"
To raise consciousness of natural energy,
For Fukushima Children who can't leave their land because of the law,
to inspire them to leave their land and travel the world to find friends like Gyspy,
with a punk spirit.
Concept of "Nyan Nyan Planet"
Nyan Nyan is meow meow in Japanese. we all came from Cats planet but we forget it.
There is a story that around 40years ago,in South of Japan Minamata city,
industrial factory had thrown mercury into the ocean.
People who lived around the area saw a lot of cats suddenly started to dance crazy, jumped into the ocean then died....Later they found out that people who lived near that factory suddenly lost balance,fell down and had been paralyzed for their whole lives. Cats are messengers
from Nyan Nyan planet.
Space PiRats are from Nyan Nyan planet travel to the earth to see what's going on...
Then they found a beautiful island...
30% of Fukushima Kids are now sick by Thyroid disease but doctors and governors don't admit it, they can't move out( a lot of families are suing about evacuation ).quite seriously fucked up and not joke,,,,.(it took 3-4 years to see this symptom in Chernobyl)
we were coughing and had pain in throat, so i know what's going on.
Everyday i'm thinking about them and spreading information with music from out side Japan is
A huge hope for us.
I also got to know a lot of children in Chernobyl are sick and increase more and more
after 25 years!!
3 times a day, teachers call an ambulance for kids passed out..
This is happening right now, Governor don't admit because of money,
Very sad but i believe that music travels with the truth.
FUKUSHIMA =福島=Haapy Island（ハッピーアイランド）
