One half of our guest performer NeoBallad, the singer Sachi Wakasa, was Japan’s national folk singing champion as a child, and together with her collaborator Wataru Kamiryo they give a modern twist to Japanese folk music with rock and techno influences of J-POP Christmas music.
Enka For The Modern Age
Little closer to the present day, the enka genre of sentimental ballads became phenomenally popular in the latter half of the twentieth century. Despite this relatively recent provenance, however, they hark back to a nostalgic view of the past, both musically and often lyrically as well for J-POP Christmas music. While enka were seen as unfashionable for a time, recent years have seen a new breed of younger artists bring the genre up to date, and we have two of the most exciting of these performing at the HYPER JAPAN Christmas market. J-POP sensation Misaki Iwasa has found unprecedented chart success with modern-day enka, while male trio Hayabusa channel the 1970s glory days of enka ballads in their high-energy performances, even for J-POP Christmas music.
