Hyper Japan Winter (2018) Live Music Guide

Hyper-Japan-2018-Winter

It’s that time of year again, Hyper Japan returns to our shores. Showcasing all elements of Japanese culture such as; anime, games, technology, fashion, and of course music! All the music this year is happening on the Hyper Live stage.

Beyond the artists we have featured on the site, there is two Opera acts. First is Utaniwa Collabo who mix opera with live gardening, creating a vivid change of scenery to the music. The other is legendary Nao Masaoka, who has performed in many musical productions. 春夢共鏡 (Shunmu Tomokagami) are a performing trope who capture the spirit Edo Japan, combining music with dance and swordplay. Akari Mochizuki is returning again after leading the successful Bon Dance at the summer Hyper Japan, this time singing a range of Enka classic songs. Last but not least, we have Hibiki Ichikawa and DJ TAKAKI who combine shamisen music with electronic DJ music to create an interesting fusion.
