The upcoming concert anticipates about 60 minutes and showcases a repertoire exceeding 25 tracks drawn from all five nations featured in the game. It aims to highlight a wide array of musical elements and genres from diverse corners of the world.

Introduced in September 2020, Genshin Impact stands as an acclaimed open-world RPG, captivating enthusiasts and players worldwide. Crafted by HOYO-MiX, HoYoverse’s in-house music studio, the original game score unfolds within Teyvat, an expansive fantasy realm comprised of seven distinct nations.
Each nation boasts a unique musical essence, featuring multiple soundtracks that intricately portray the region’s history, culture, landscapes, and ongoing adventures. Rooted in orchestral arrangements, Genshin Impact’s music amalgamates global musical elements, effectively illustrating the diverse regions and populace thriving within Teyvat.
