The Ricecookers

​This Brooklyn based band of Japanese musicians will be bringing their alternative rock sound for the first time to our Fine Arts Stage at KotoriCon.  

The Ricecookers have performed at shows and festivals​​ in New York CIty and throughout the east coast. Their latest E.P. “again and again” was just released through iTunes and Amazon.


Kyo Daiko Taiko

We are pleased to announce the return of Kyo Daiko Drummers to open KotoriCon 2015. This group from Philadelphia had performed a few years ago at KotoriCon and we are happy they wanted to return. 

Kyo Daiko is a community- based group, which is the result of a collaboration between Settlement Music School and Shofuso Japanese House and Garden. The group has performed at the UPenn's Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology's Japan Day Celebration, Philadelphia Japanese Association New Year's Party, The World Cafe Live, and more. 


​Greg Cipes

​ At 16 Greg  wrote, recorded and self produced his first single that became a small dance club hit in South Florida at the time and has since released an album in 2007 that has sold over 60,000 copies entitled “Conscious Revolution” by his Roots Rock Reggae band “Cipes and The People”.  Cipes now has a new band,  “Super Space Fighters” that the critics are calling the new electronic “Beatles” meets a young David Bowie. The band has a Comic book and movie.  You have heard him singing as Beast Boy on Teen Titans. Catch him on the Fine Arts Stage at KotoriCon!

High Council​​

From the abandoned asylums and haunted pine barrens of South Jersey comes HighCouncil. For years, HighCouncil has been bludgeoning its loyal fans with ferocious epics of riff-fueled neoclassic rock-metal. HighCouncil has played live performances at venues from New York to ​Maryland, building a fan base in the Philadelphia/South Jersey area.
