Saori Kobayashi and two fans at Japan Expo Paris 2015

We here at Brave Wave are happy to announce that we will be returning to Japan Expo in Paris, France, for the second consecutive year! Last year's event was an incredible experience for us, and we're so excited to meet even more fans and VGM enthusiasts this year.

Our star guest this year will be composer Saori Kobayashi, who attended Japan Expo last year as well. This time around, she'll not only be at the Brave Wave booth to greet fans, but will also be performing two concerts along with the Japan Game Music Orchestra and vocalist Eri Ito. Definitely a performance not to be missed!

At the Brave Wave booth, Founder/Director Mohammed Taher and CEO Alex Aniel will be present, and Brave Wave merchandise will also be sold. We'll have much of our catalog on hand, including CDs of Street Fighter II: The Definitive Soundtrack, Saori's new solo album Terra Magica, Journey by AKANE, Smoke Thief's debut album Heart Beat Circuit, and our bestselling album World 1-2: The Complete Collection. We'll also have listening stations set up, so come treat your ears and hopefully discover some music you'll love!
