The Fukushima 50 – the men and women who made a heroic sacrifice for the safety of their people, their country and beyond, potentially giving their own life. Working in the midst of the developing 2011 Japan nuclear crisis and radiation at the Dai-ichi plant reactors, following the destruction of the 9.0 magnitude Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, they are true heroes who most of us can only look up to.
Julius, having a personal connection with nuclear catastrophe victims as his grandmother had lost her life due to the effects of the Chernobyl disaster, eager to raise awareness about the great yet unknown workers at the Fukushima plant, composed a Hymn dedicated to them and to the survivors of the crisis; a musical tribute to their bravery, solemn attitude and dedication.
An emotional and powerful orchestral-electronic piece for those who have showed the word what being a patriot truly means, the Fukushima 50 Hymn expresses their heroism, the pain of Japan and celebrates the spirit of its people.
We are also offering the mp3 of the Fukushima 50 Hymn score free of charge for everyone who has contributed with a donation through any charity organization, or liked the tribute video on YouTube.
