The momentum of the live performance boosts the floor and is praised by various artists in Japan and overseas.
In live performances, we have sessions with a variety of guests such as sitar, MC, and dancers, and are always pursuing their potential.
What we can do is ourselves, so art and design such as jackets and T-shirts, Flyer at the hosting event, etc. are handled by Kei, T-shirts are manually printed by members, etc. We see from end to end as a single piece of work, and create it by ourselves.
In addition, the hosted regular event “Impression” will be started at the same time as the formation.
When there are many members a day, we go to four events, and we look for various artists with their feet, eyes, ears, and make this without compromise.
“It has a reputation for“ notice ”and“ other than that ”, and it has been a great success every time.
Several songs from “Impression” will be recorded on the snow board DVD produced by DELTRIBE, which will be released this fall.
