Hello folks! I just want to introduce an awesome band I recently discovered called Wagakki Band (和楽器バンド). They were recommended to me by an e-mail pal, and I just found myself drawn to their unusual music. They combine modern hardrock with traditional Japanese music elements and the results are electric! Thanks a bunch for the recommendation, Coco! The following song is titled Senbonzakura (千本桜).

Let me just say that the music video is excellent! The costumes and make-up are beautiful. I just couldn’t stop watching. It’s like a movie, don’t you agree? High-quality with an eye for aesthetics. Ah, I’m in paradise.
As for the music, I love it! The vocals is strongly and beautifully traditional. I also love the clashing of the traditional Japanese instruments with the hardrock ones. They make for an interesting combination. I think it would be more awesome if someone was to rap. Just a suggestion.
What do you think? Have you heard of Wagakki Band before? If not, what do you think of them after watching the Senbonzakura MV?
