I’m trying to facilitate a cultural exchange between my town and our Japanese sister city. Both places host annual music festivals, and I have local contacts at our lp radio station and the festival here. I’d love to get recordings of their music fest broadcast in our town and vice versa. I ran it by the city’s Special Programs director, she loved it, and reached out to her contact, but hasn’t heard anything back in a few days. I’d like to just email the festival and city directly (which she endorsed), but can’t be sure I’ll get an English speaker on the other end, and my Japanese feels a bit too limited to get this idea across lucidly. I’m not expecting anyone to run ongoing translations if I do receive a response, but any help with the initial reach-out would be so very rad. I will be attempting to email them in English (and shitty Japanese?) later today.
Thanks so much and sorry if this is a crummy place to post this!
