WagakkiBand Concert Movie

Monday, October 12, 2015

New York Premiere! WagakkiBand is the “New Wave of Rock Entertainment” that fuses shigin (poetry recitation, a traditional Japanese performing art), wagakki (traditional Japanese musical instruments), and rock music. They are already recognized by many US fans from their YouTube smash hit, “Senbonzakura” which has over 25 million views to date, and their recent sold out US debut concert at Club Nokia, LA Live was filled with die-hard American enthusiasts. This concert movie includes live footage from one of their most memorable live concerts in Japan and also features a short trailer of “Attack on Titan – dTV Original Drama Version” where they perform opening theme song. Their latest album, “Yasouemaki” recently debuted at #1  on the Japanese charts.

Note: This is a non-narrative concert film. The performances are in Japanese and are not subtitled in English.
