PROMIC, the leading Japanese entertainment industry foundation to support the growth of Japanese music internationally, continues to build awareness for its recent launch of the Japan Anime Music Lab. (JAMLAB.).
Continued synergy between anime and Japanese music artists, who perform the theme songs to many top-rated series and feature films, has greatly expanded each genre’s passionate fanbases, both across Japan and internationally.
In North America and Europe legions of followers in key markets in North American and Europe have embraced the “J-POP” phenomenon and scores of Western cites are now key stops for many Japanese music artists’ live tour schedules.
