On the horizon at the O2 Islington Academy in November is ‘Kanon x Kanon’. You may recognise the name as it includes Kanon Wakeshima who appeared at Hyper Japan earlier this Summer. You can read the full press release below –
Experience the stage match-up of Lolita sensation “Cello Vocalist” Kanon Wakeshima and the “2.5th-dimensional phenomenal musical unit” kanon x kanon!
Kanon Wakeshima, Tokyo’s one and only “Cello vocalist” comes back to Europe to perform. Kanon’s rich, haunting sound, rooted in her classical music background, blends into current pop music and Gothic & Lolita street fashion culture.
In addition, she will be joined by another “kanon”, famed Antic Cafe bassist Kanon, to have their European debut as the unit “kanon x kanon” (pronounced ‘kanon kanon’)! The duo’s deep affection for Anime and Anime songs, mixed with their distinctive visual expression, is definitely something unprecedented.
Like a diamond with many facets, “kanon” and “kanon x kanon” sparkle in many colors – feel them all and welcome to this truly special concert by “kanon x kanon x kanon”.
