LA is now heating up for two big Japanese artists coming to LA in June.

One is Miyabi who is recognized as Japanese Samrai guitarist and is the one of the top artists in the mainstream rock scene in Japan.

And the other is the one of the hottest Japanese idols, Jin Akanishi. He is a member of popular J-Pop group, KAT-TUN and is the one of the two lead vocalists.

Their music styles are so different but it is true that they both attract a lot of J-Rock/J-Pop fan in the world. And what's interesting is they both will perform at Club Nokia in the downtown, LA in June! Will you go to Miyavi? or Jin? or both???
Fans should be sooo busy so be ready for it! :)

PLAYLIST looks at the dyanamic fusions coming out of Japan. Japanese brass is in full swing, from Tokyo to Texas. The big band sounds of Asakusa Jinta, the traditional shamisen fusions of Yoshida Brothers, and all-girl pop line-up Pistol Valve are rocking audiences around the world. Plus, were exploring the streets and neighborhoods of Tokyo and the new wave of fusion bands who make up the club scene there. Omodaka are producing traditonal Japanese music with a modern twist, and the extreme fishing trio Gyoko mix their musical prowess and with culinary delights of sushi.

SXSW '09 is just over, and over fifteen thousand people came to this huge music event to discover new talents or to have some crazy parties!
Japan Nite started in 1996, and many Japanese bands have played there including Puffy, Oreska Band, ELLEGARDEN and so on.
With this as a start, some bands grabbed their chances to debut in the U.S, and achieved big success. Bands found their ways to burst onto the music scene in the US.
It may not be too much to say that Japan Nite has been the gateway to success for Japanese bands.
And as all of you seeing our website know, we, Daruma Label, released the US debut album for one of the bands performing at Japan Nite this year. We are now so exciting to receive feedbacks from you guys!

We will update photos soon!
