Jonas’ Weekly Music Spotlight Wk2: OMODAKA

Published on October 26th, 2011.

OMODAKA is a group with two core members, them being composer Soichi Terada and singer Kanazawa Akiko (famous for singing the Pokémon song Kazoe Uta). Along with these two core members, OMODAKA collaborates with an interesting selection of visual artists to make their offbeat videos and live performances.

OMODAKA’s music mixes 8-bit with traditional Japanese vocals, so although being chiptunes at the core, there’s really nothing else like it.

Although I’ve never seen OMODAKA live, that’s definitely something I’d love to do. He creates amazing tunes live on stage, it’s also weird as hell but I like that. Check out the video below, it’s amazing.
