Singing at Hyper Japan

Last Friday I performed at Hyper Japan that took place at Earls Court Two in London. Straight after my performance, a lady from Japan found me behind the stage and asked whether I use contemporary and classical ballet elements. Her question made me very happy as it is very important when people can understand what you do without explanation. Some people asked me about ballet before, but she was the first one who said ‘contemporary and classical ballet’.

World’s Top Music Markets

My good friend asked me why I am concentrating on Japanese music events. To be honest, I’m just doing and wearing what I really enjoy and I really love my songs as if they were my children. I feel very comfortable in my image and actually wear Western labels, though the combination looks rather Asian for some reason. Everything goes just naturally, and if it’s going easier for me it would not be clever to resist it.

In the meantime, the latest statistics shows that Japan is the Music Market Number 2, following the USA. While the UK’s music market “is continuing to decline”… Germany, famous with its electronic music, is doing very well as well. The statistics shows UK as number 3 this year, although stating exactly the same amount of money as in Germany, which means that UK is actually number 4, as Germany was number 3 last year, and only an inattentive reader can’t notice the same amount of money they mentioned.

Screenshot from THE MAGIC HIT video

I felt a bit unconfident about my idea of wearing the collar band with recognisable buildings of many countries in ‘The Magic Hit’ video, but then I watched some creative music videos on the internet and realised they use quite the same ideas, and sometimes you can’t say anything else about a video then just ‘professionally made’ . At least I am honest with my ideas. The video hasn’t been finished yet. Be patient.

The first song released on iTunes

Exactly 1 year ago I had my first open mic in London. It was a challenge for me to perform even just 3 songs, I was shaking and afraid of talking into the microphone. This weekend, 1 year later, I am having two 30 min sets of my original program on the stage outside Westfield Shopping Centre (the biggest shopping centre in Europe), and the first song released on iTunes and Amazon – music written by a Japanese composer Kocha Shoji and lyrics by a talented songwriter Ksenia Shcherbino. 🙂
This release is so in time like a gift from the Universe!
