Studio Ghibli fans, get your wallet ready.
The musical mastermind behind the scores of numerous Ghibli films, Joe Hisashi, will be making his way to Singapore for the first time on February 21 and 22, 2020.
The composer and musical director are best known for his Studio Ghibli scores which include music for films such as Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky, My Friend Totoro, and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind.
