Wagakki Band Tradition and J rock Fusion

I found something new on YouTube today...well, new for me anyways, and I wanted to share because I found the music to be very cool!

...and if this is old news to some of you, my apologies for the re-run :0)
Here is the Wiki rundown: The lead singer Yuko Suzuhana and seven musicians fuse synthesized vocals (literally a synthesizer that sings!) with wagakki (traditional Japanese musical instruments) and Western rock.

The music video of their song Senbonzakura (千本桜?) has received more than 30 million views on YouTube.

...and the video of their song Tengaku (天樂?) was seen more than 200,000 times in four days.

From what I could find..it looks like they have been around since 2014 (?), and have done special events in Japan, France, and the U.S. They had their first independent concert in Taipei in 2015.
..and just a side note - their lead singer, Yuko Suzuhana, was literally a beauty queen!(Miss Nico Nama - 2011)

Wagakki Band - Love the mix of old and new!
