This is a Japanese rock band.

When they first formed their group, they sang at the studio after midnight to reduce costs at 1 o’clock, and their band name is a play on words.

They are extremely popular right now, and they are only gaining momentum especially in Asia.

The lead vocal Taka in particular speaks very good English and is one contributing factor to their fame.

They are a very cool band so see them once and become a fan!

Last up is Japan’s very own samurai guitarist, MIYAVI.

He currently performs live in over 250 shows in approximately 30 countries, including North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.

MIYAVI's guitar playing method is unique and he uses the slap technique.

Without using a pick at all, he uses his fingers and utilizes the chopper (slapping the guitar) technique.

With his groundbreaking visual style, he is now targeting the world, releasing songs that the world can dance to and albums that can compete globally, and as a result his popularity is skyrocketing.

You won’t be able to keep your eyes off of this guy, who possesses a coolness unlike any other.
