"Hi, I'm Kazuha, and this is my band, Kazha! All the way from Japan! I play with Hideki, my guitarist, and myself on vocals and bass. Have we been here before? Yes! In 2016! But we came back because we missed Kotoricon! And you!"
You feel a strange longing in your heart. The same longing that Kazuha must have felt before she finally formed the rock band of her dreams in 2009. Your mind imagines what it must have been like to tour across Europe and Asia, playing the music that will fill the gaping void in your soul. What will you do?
❥ Go watch Kazha's show in the Fine Arts Center
❥ Visit Kazha's table in Kotoricon's Artist's Alley & buy a T-Shirt and DVD for your collection
Hoh Daiko Taiko
"HI *thwump* WE *thwump* ARE *thwump* HOH *thwump* DAIKO *twump* TAIKO *thwump thwump*!! We come from the Seabrook Buddhist Temple to get people PUMPED UP and energized with our drumming! *thwump thwump thwump* Have we made your heart beat faster yet?! *thwump* GOOD NOW YOU’RE FEELING IT!"
As your pulse begins to increase with the beat of the drum, you can feel your feet start to shift and your arms move on their own. You are aware that the Taiko Drum is one of the most easily-recognized exports from "The Land of the Rising Sun," but you have never heard what an entire legion of them might sound like. What do you do?
