Yoshiki – Japanese composer, drummer, pianist and leader of the rock bands X Japan and The Last Rockstars – has teamed up with German rock legends Scorpions for a unique performance of “Wind Of Change“. Watch the video below.

The clip is featured in the music documentary “Yoshiki: Under The Sky”, which had its international world premiere at the AMC Empire 25 in New York City’s Times Square last September and features Yoshiki leading a global concert featuring today’s top musical acts.

“Yoshiki: Under The Sky” captures an extraordinary collection of international artists on an emotional journey through the pain of losing loved ones and uniting the world through the healing power of music. Shot in Germany, Beijing, Tokyo and LA, the film features interviews and performances from The Chainsmokers (USA), St. Vincent (USA), Scorpions (Germany), Sarah Brightman (UK), Nicole Scherzinger (USA), HYDE (Japan), Sugizo (Japan), SixTONES (Japan), Jane Zhang (China) and Lindsey Stirling (USA) as it crosses international borders and celebrates a range of diverse voices coming together at a time of universal upheaval.

The film is produced by Emmy Award winner Sid Ganis (Iron Man, Akeelah and the Bee, The Making of Raiders of the Lost Ark), Emmy Award winner Mark Ritchie (Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé, The Big Steppers Tour: Live from Paris), along with consulting producer Stephen Kijak (WE ARE X, Stones in Exile, Scott Walker: 30 Century Man) and directed by Yoshiki.

The project is the artist’s first feature film as a director and was conceived during the pandemic, when musicians were unable to communicate with their fans.
