WagakkiBand ( wagakkibando) is a musical group from Japan. The shigin lead singer
Yuko Suzuhana (elected Miss Nico Nama in 2011) and seven musicians fuse Vocaloid songs
with wagakki (traditional Japanese musical instruments) and Western rock.[1][2] Their music video
Tengaku () was seen more than 200,000 times in four days.[3] Moreover, the music video of the
song Senbonzakura () has received more than 50 million views on YouTube.[4] In 2014,
WagakkiBand was invited by Japan Expo 2014 in France and their first oversea independent concert
was held at Taipei in 2015. On July 4, 2015, WagakkiBand headlined a sold-out concert at Club Nokia
in Los Angeles as a main event at Anime Expo. The Vocaloid IA was the opening act, also in her first
North American live show. They cover vocaloid songs in their album "Vocalo Zanmai" and also
composed their original music in subsequent albums.
