The Niconico sensation turned Jpop Idol group, Dancing Dolls R. brings their love for otaku and vocaloid culture to American fans, and will make their 3rd US live appearance since last summer with their label mate and a new breed of J-POP sensation, MIREI (Mirei Touyama) on SonyMusic at Anime Matsuri in Houston, TX this April. They will headline the main music concert on Friday, April 7 and will guest judge K-POP Dance Battle the following day with a special live performance. Earlier in January, both Dancing Dolls R. and MIREI rocked the crowd at SacAnime in Sacramento, California performing original songs and vocaloid covers, as well as a controversial remake of Beyoncé’s FORMATION and the dance floor anthem, Porter Robinson’s “SHELTER”.

If you are planning to attend Anime Matsuri, don’t miss their performances. If you won’t be around Texas this time, don’t worry and stay tuned for more US and international dates on its way!

Dancing Dolls R.

Following 10 million plus social video views,Dancing Dolls made their major record debut from Sony Music with “Touch-A.S.A.P.-/Shanghai Darling” in Sept, 2012. Choreographed by Misaki, the leader of the group, their sharp dance moves and powerful vocal skills distinguish them from other idol groups, but still hold the J-POP essence and sensibilities. Their EPs including “monochrome”, “Ring Dong” and their major debut singe “Touch- A.S.A.P.-/Shanghai Darling” are available at iTunes Store worldwide and the music video for each title tracks are also available at Vevo!

MIREI (Mirei Touyama)

The new breed of 18 year old pop star representing her own SNS generation is definitely an artist to watch out even for the international music fans.
She won Japan’s biggest dance competition, being featured in one of the top Gospel Choirs in America, and also released a commercial US single, Tattoo when she was only 14. Last summer, she made her major debut with the 12 song album set, titled “My Way” from Sony Music Japan and charted #1 on iTunes. She was also featured by Radio Fish for their summer smash, “Golden Tower” that is being viewed more than 12 million times on YouTube between the live version and the official MV. Her music videos are also available on Vevo.

TsuShiMaMiRe is Japanese Art Punk Girls Trio since 1999.
Their style is very free style, alternative, electric, punk rock, free jazz, ska, surf and funk, mixing noisy and pop instrumental sounds with idiosyncratic, quirky, often funny or disturbing lyrics.

They are one of the many bands to have become famous in the United States through the Austin, Texas South by Southwest music festival, and also through their performances at anime conventions, with the Suicide Girls, and at Benten Label’s “Japan Girls Nite” U.S. tours.
In 2007 they were voted “Best All-Girl Group” by Shojo Beat magazine USA.

In Japan they made a major debut in 2009 from Victor Entertainment. And then they have started their own label, Mojor Records in 2010. They never do a member change for 17 years. So their groove is super tight and emotional. Their live performance is absolutely great.
They are definitely one of the best live bands and also the most powerful all girl bands in Japan.

Their 11th Album [ABANDON HUMAN] was released in Oct 2015.

They had a tour in U.S in March to April 2016 with WE Are the Asteroid. And they come back to U.S. in October 2016! Come to see TsuShiMaMiRe!!!
