Kawaiicore band ‘Lady Baby’ to appear at Hyper Japan Xmas 2015

by Phil Wheat


Organisers have announced that Lady Baby, Japan’s quirkiest new music group (pictured above), are making their international debut at Hyper Japan Christmas Market 2015. The combination of Japanese idols and a harder, Metal sound is given an extra edge, both aurally and visually, by the addition of the most unique idol of all. This group smashes all borders, be they gender, nationality, culture, age, or values to create Japanese idols with a new feeling.

Lady Beard is the “Kawaiicore” frontman of the group. With the slogan of “singing and dancing to destroy”, this former wrestler’s gutteral vocals give the band a little more bite when it comes to the harder side of their music, and his fame has shot skyward via the internet over the last few years. More traditional “kawaii” cuteness is provided by Kuromiya Rei and Kaneko Rie.

Also appearing at Hyper Japan Christmas Market 2015, which takes place 27th – 29th November 2015 at the Tobacco Docks in London, are Shironuri artist and international fashion icon Minori, who will be performing onstage and giving away tips on shironuri makeup!

Shironuri (lit. “white-painted”), while drawing inspiration from classical Japanese makeup styles as seen on geisha and kabuki theatre, has been completely reinvented by Minori. Appearing at overseas events since 2014, she has been featured in international press and her work is to be shown at the Honolulu Museum of Art. In August 2015, she showcased collaboration work with Sanrio in Taiwan.

Also, vocaloid Hatsune Miku returns to Hyper Japan Christmas Market this November, thanks once again to an unofficial show put on by mega-Miku-fan-group Mirai no Neiro. Fans will be able to watch a large-scale Hatsune Miku singing and dancing to a selection of fan-made songs, naturally accompanied by glow sticks available to audience members to perfect the atmosphere!
