Global Rockstar 2014!

Our song "Be Alive" has been nominated for Global Rockstar 2014! Check it out and vote for us! Thanks;) http://beta.globalrockstar.com/artists/yocco We wrote this song right after the great earthquake in 2011 in the northeastern Japan to give strength and encouragement to not only Japanese but more many people who need the resilient spirit of this song across the sea. We shot this video in Fukushima, it's so beautiful landscape, don't you think;-)? We want as many people to hear this song and see the video as possible, and we want to do live performance abroad not only in Japan in near future. Thank you for your listening, we look forward to seeing you soon!

Respect for the Aged Day!

In Japan, today is a holiday to greatly respect and admire the elderly people, which is called "KEIROU NO HI". I have only one grandmother who is hospitalized now, so I went to see her and handed over my letter I wrote to her. She was glad to receive it. She said, "I'm so happy to see you all my life ". To hear that, I almost cried so tried to hold back tears in my eyes. I just smiled. I hope she leaves the hospital soon. Thanks for your readiing:) See ya!

Hi, Heat of summer comes back again in Tokyo... How are you doing? My previous radio show is here( audio archive ) : http://twitcasting.tv/kimotto_yocco/movie/18528088 I play Beer Barrel Polka with my accordion to begin with, and then sang "Say it again" from Marie Digby about 15 minutes later:) I hope you can enjoy it!

My Previous Show!

My Previous Radio show is here (audio archive): http://twitcasting.tv/kimotto_yocco/movie/17976087 I sang "Torn" Natalie Imbruglia (Famous Australian singer!) and Japanese popular children's song called "Shabon-dama" which means Soap bubble. I translated this song into Japanese and I'm happy if you listen it when you have a chance. I hope you can enjoy Japanese feelings through these translated songs. I think I'm going to translate Japanese kid's songs into Japanese as much as possible and this will help intereaction and understandings among other countries' people or culture. That will be a long journey, but I believe it'll be achieved. It's my mission. Thanks for your support on Reverbnation!

Bon Holiday in Japan Now!

Hi, how have you been? I'm sure you're having a nice summer vacation. Today, I have to inform you that I won't broadcast my radio show on twitcasting today.

In Japan, this time of the year is called O-Bon. It's a time to honor our ancestors. Many people take a vacation and back to their hometown This return rush called Kisei-rush.You know, Kisei-rush causes awful traffic conjestion. Horrible... but as for me, actually, I have my hometown near my house (3minutes on foot) and I have never experienced such a disaster;) What about your country's summer vacation? I hope you can enjoy this hottest summer! Thanks for reading my text, See you next letter! Kimotto (YOCCO Lead singer)
