Emergenza Japan 2023 Tokyo Preliminary Round 1 - Report on the participation 🔥

Emergenza Japan 2023 Tokyo Preliminary Round 1 - Report on the participation 🔥


I am very happy that Mudia exists and supports artists of all kinds. I am happy that there are events organised like Emergenza Japan 2023 in which I will be taking part for the first time. 


As someone for whom life would be empty without music, I'm very excited about the Emergenza Japan 2023 event and I'm looking at all the performers taking part.


I have looked through the musical work of all the participants in this event and I can say that it is a very diverse group, which makes me very happy because it was an interesting duel and an evening full of emotions. The course of the preliminary round 1 was very interesting and exciting, as we were able to witness the confrontation of participants representing different musical genres and artistic achievements. It was also noticeable that the criteria for choosing to support a particular performer varied widely: admiration for their work, familiarity with a particular performer, following the majority of people.


Congratulations to all the performers taking part in Emergenza Japan 2023 Tokyo Preliminary Round 1  for their excellent participation! It was a really exciting duel, which in this group resulted in the following outcome:


1. My ass


Congratulations to My ass for winning first place 🥇 with a 180 000 points in this preliminary round 1. Please continue to give your best in the near future 💪.


I must admit that the very name of this Japanese rock duo on the recipient is impressive. My ass was formed in 2019 and consists of vocalist Ken, who is also the bassist, and drummer Gen. They have played many live shows in their hometown of Utsunomiya and sold out shows at KENT as part of their own project in 2021. After a six-month rest, they appeared in the 2022 edition of the Veriten Rock Festival Live House. It's worth visiting their Tik-Tok account (@myass_official) and Youtube channel (@myass_official5928) to see just how much of an original band they are. Intrigued by the band's name, I listened to, among other tracks available on Youtube, 'So wack! taken from their 1album 'Hello everyone, We are 'my ass'' and I have to say that I was drawn in not so much by Ken's vocals, but by the overwhelmingly good sound of the drums and bass. It's a solid synchronisation!


To give you a better idea of My ass's work, here are the lyrics to the song UK CITY (feat. under BRIDGE) from their first album 'Hello everyone, We are 'my ass''.


"UK CITY (feat. under BRIDGE)"


Composer: Gen, Ken


Lyrics: Manato, Tokiwa


ジェネレーション新たな幕開け


待つだけは飽きて 行動で格上げ


無いものねだりも今日で終わり

2. JUNK MARTINI


In second place with 130 000 points was the band JUNK MARTINI 🥈 Congratulations on to the second place. Please continue to give it your all in the near future 💪 .


Junk Martini is a highly original pop music film band made up of two members (Yours and Kai). Through the music they create, the band is able to move our all senses and transport us to a cinematic world. Looking at the band's social media profile, it can be seen that the two members have divided their roles and Yours is primarily responsible for writing lyrics, composing music, singing, creating illustrations or images for films and playing guitar. Kai, on the other hand, is responsible for the vocals; creating the illustrations for the videos; and for characterisation and editing the video. They already have a track record of participating in the finals of Emergenza Japan in 2017.


Their Youtube channel is well worth a visit, where we can check out their original work, including their latest MV 'Tetra Psycho', for which the teaser is intriguing:


" It's a place where the sun never shines. I can't resist this insidious connection, even if I want to beg. This journey that will continue tomorrow I am sure I will see a different view next time. I wonder if I can believe it."


Both voices are very interesting to both Yours and Kai.


Yours' account on Tik-Tok (@yours_yua) is also worth a visit, where you can check out his original work and covers of songs by Korean band BTS like Butter and Yet to Come, among others. It should be emphasised that Yours combines playing the guitar with singing at the same time in a sensational way.


To better illustrate their work, below are the lyrics of the song 'Tetra Psycho'.


TETRA PSYCHO


まあ同罪 さあどうぞお先に


徐々に 表情に 


正直、どうしようもない問題


妙に 噂話に集りがち


「あいつってさ」って口癖で


噛み付いてたってなんか虚しい


止まない雨はないってたって


抗えないってそんな毎日


やめたって逃げだってわかってる


だからって ネタだって言ってんじゃんなあw


今のネイルにも冷めたしな


己紛らわして世渡り what time?


ときに雲隠れ


空っぽの舟には 行く宛てもなく


Deepin', Wonderful, Deepin'


「また明日」って


辛辣なあと味


No side


憐れみの航海を 誇りな


明日はまた違う景色に巡り会えんだろ、なあ


渇き切った 脳裏に 焼きつけて


雷鳴に踊れ


テトラのように


Will you get gonna do it?


Baby, it's too fake!


Now really can't stop


I'm gonna do it!


That's amazing factor!!


No, are you satisfied?


I don't care about you, ananimous


孤独まっしぐら あの日トラウマ 


心も 足掻くも 逆さまのthe world


Struggle for migration


いつの間にか 保険も効かなくなった今


言葉狩りに富むジャーナリズムに


今日も未解決のオンパレード


なんでだろな これも味がしないな


だって才能ない これもやめちまいたいな


待ってそうだった どれも真面目がすぎるな


抑えたって 脳は欲張りだな


(Tetra Psycho)


Ah 高らかな要塞を 見上げな


今日はまた違う何かに巡り会えんだろ、なあ


あたたかいな 祝いの嘘さえも


夢に踊る


テトラと呼べ


Will you get gonna do it?


Baby, it's too fake!


Now really can't stop


I'm gonna do it!


That's amazing factor!!


I am very curious to see how his future will turn out in the Otonova2023 competition.


3. 小野田恵 (Megumi Onoda)


Third place along with 120 000 points went to 小野田恵 (Megumi Onoda), 🥉 who is a performer born in 1984. She says of herself "my desires for three generations have been the desire for appetite, the desire for sleep and the desire for the stage". She is mainly active in the Kanto region, where she performs primarily in venues such as cultural halls, live bars and event venues. In addition to her own written and composed songs, she specialises in covers of hits from the 1960s to the 1980s. In addition to singing, she is a versatile entertainment businesswoman, such as MC at various events, choreography, dance performance, instructor of dance and singing lessons and producer of events. On her blog on Ameblo, we can get a glimpse of her dance choreographies, into which she weaves jazz music. On her Youtube channel (@megumimusou), on the other hand, we can learn about her numerous live performances. Megumi has an interesting, strong voice and she also dances well.


4. CAFUNÉL


Four place along with 100 000 points went to CAFUNÉL. Cafunel is a big family band that tastes three times better than one. The band's name comes from the Portuguese word 'cafune', which means 'the way you gently comb your fingers through your loved one's hair'. They play light-hearted music that touches the heart, but at the same time their performances are capable of getting you up and dancing. Each of their performances is different. The amazing thing is that the vocals change with each song. The line-up sometimes changes too. Even the genre changes. They deliver a variety of songs, one of which is sure to appeal to many listeners. Their current line-up is:


Vocal & Flutes - Yuko


Vocal - Misa


Bassist & Vocal - Takaaki Kitagawa


Keyboard: Nokonoko


Guitarist - Los Angeles Otani


Percussion - Rei Fujita


A.S. - Mizukichi


T.Sax. - SJ


Tp. - TAO-paipai


Tp. - Kiichi


Tb. - Norinori Johnson


On 17 July 2022, they premiered their new single "Gokuraku Torihana"


It is well worth visiting their Tik-Tok account (@cafunel2017) and Youtube channel (@cafunel) to learn more about their work. There are plenty of live performances there.


To better illustrate Cafunel's work, below is their beautiful song 'Bird of Paradise'."


"Bird of Paradise"


Composer: Yuko Aoyama, Takaaki Kitagawa


Lyricist: Aoyama Yuko


鏡か布か見紛う水面に


すう、とこの手を差し入れて


かき乱してみたくなるけれど


それが命取り


予感が笛鳴らしたけど


空を降りて 足を取られ


波へ


極楽鳥 風に揺れる


海沿いの中央分離帯


力抜いて あなたの手に


身を委ねれば傷つかない


楽園顔の日差しに 心奪われて


人魚のふりで泳ぐあなたの好きなこの色


侵食したあなたの価値観が


何度も傷に塩を塗る


温度差とは恐ろしいものだ


やっと立ち止まる


最後の糸が切れぬように


忘れたふりしていたキイを開けて


記憶に胸つかまれても


明日にはなくす感情と識って


極楽鳥 風に揺れる


海沿いの中央分離帯


次の風に吹かれたなら


あなたにはもう傷つかない


かわく時までオレンジの翼を広げて


誰より自由に泳ぐ私の好きなこの色


5.Two-Headed Boy


Five place along with 90 000 points went to band Two-Headed Boy. They are a mystery to me as I couldn't find any information about them 😭. Does anyone know what kind of music they play or anything more about them?


6.TranS-O-


Six place along with 80 000 points went to TranS-O-.  TranS-O- has a growing number of supporters here. Hailing from Tokyo, it is the mysterious O-9 (Eye of the Young Vocalist) project [TranS-O -] that wants to carry the message "no matter how imperfect you are, no matter what complex you have remain a soul, send freely without being controlled by anything ". Oku's motto is to enjoy expression without fear or inspiration. It's the body, what you feel, because it's the soul. Inspiration is a range of possibilities. Put everything that pours out into free sounds, thoughts and words. It is worth visiting his channel (@trans-o-6196) on Youtube to get a closer look at the work. I, for one, have some feelings of similarity with Gackt. Oku has a strong, slightly hoarse, original tone of voice. You will notice that he also likes the visual kei style. On her channel, she has numerous songs of her own but also covers, including a song translated into Japanese called 愛の讃歌 (Hymne à l'amour) by Edith Piaf. The world she creates is magical and I am not surprised that she has a growing following.


7. Fanny Hill


The last place along with 60 000 points went to Fanny Hill.


Formed in 2019, Fanny Hill is a four-members band creating music incorporating sounds from ska punk, post-punk and new wave. How they refers to herself is an enjoyable and exciting Lollipop band  with headquarters and main activities in Tokyo. It is noteworthy that the banďs vocalist Asei lwamoto is aIso a guitarist and brilliantly combines both. The other members of the band are: Kosuke Kikutani (Guitarist), Dorji (Bassist), Atsushi Tada (Drummer, who joined the band in 2022). With their slogan "Play, youth! " they want to create music that energises people. It is worth visiting their Youtube channel and checking out their EP Don't, which consists of four original songs. In my opinion they have a bit of rock & roll and I don't know why I thought of The Beatless when listening to Do you Remember. Their Youtube channel is worth a visit, as the band released their second MV 'Sea Bass Fishing' this November, which introduces us to a worl d of playful punk. Among the performers of Otonova2023, they were probably the only group offering such sounds. To better illustrate their work, below are the lyrics of their original song 'Sea Bas Fishing'.  


Sea Bas Fishing


チョビチョビしたい本当んとこ


ユニークに弾けてなんぼ


笑われたいのに笑われない


笑われたいのにさ


ノリ気じゃないの本当んとこ


まじめなとこ悪いけど


我慢したくないでも我慢しなくちゃ


我慢したくないけどさ


sea bas fishing now スイスイ


スーダラスーダスタラタ


フーチークーチーyeah yeah


sea bas fishing nowスイスイ


愉快で痛快素敵な


休日に謝謝


よちよち歩きのころ


もうちっと自由に動けてた


愛されたいのに愛されない


愛されたいのにさ


とんちかんなマナーゲシュタポ


勘違い自称お笑いオタク


我慢したくないでも我慢しなくちゃ


我慢したくないけどさ


It was a very interesting event. Congratulations once again to the winner of 'My ass'. I look forward to future editions of this amazing project.
