“We look different, we ALL smile the same”.
SkyBridge was established at Berklee College of Music in 2013 as a global project band that promotes diversity, equality and world peace with musicians around the world. The founder Utako Toyama (vocalist and composer) realized that "Music can be a bridge between people and that can happen to anyone - not just musicians" while she made friends from all over the world through music.
The slogan of SkyBridge is "We look different, we ALL smile the same" and our goal is to create meaningful experiences for the audience. We do this by making music with them at our events and thus, we connect those people beyond any borders they have.
SkyBridge is a band that creates original music, but it is not a 'regular' music band. It's a team of people who all fall under the same purpose, to create social movements through music by inspiring people. We are unique because we intend to improve major social issues such as discrimination of race, gender, LGBT. By letting audience members experience the joyfulness of singing and in particular, singing collectively in large groups, we hope that our audience will realize clearly that we as humans are ONE- we ALL smile the same.
SkyBridge has performed with musicians from more than 47 different countries so far, including Grammy Awarded musicians such as Victor Wooten and Mark Walker.
Our concert is YOUR concert - This is the concept of SkyBridge's concert.
Our music is for YOU to sing. By singing our songs together, we will become one big family no matter who you are, what you believe or how different you are.
