Christmas Concert at Daikanyama Unit Tokyo on December 23, 2015

Since 2008, Hikashu has been holding special concert with guests around christmas time and this year it will be held at Daikanyama Unit Tokyo on December 23.

This year's guests are Sakata Akira, Tennis Courts, Kamomentaru, and Semba Yuki. Also Nanawo provides djing between sets.

Sakata Akira is a veteran jazz saxophonist who has been a frequent collaborator of Hikashu (and Jim O'Rourke's idol). He started playing in late 1960s, joined Yamashita Yosuke Trio in early 1970s and toured worldwide. Later he went solo and remains quite busy to this day.

Tennis Courts is a pop duo. Kamomentaru is a comedians duo. Semba Yuki is a model and dancer who graced the cover of the "Hanauta Hajime" album which Hikashu released in 1991.

This annual Christmas concert features a special program and fans throughout the country come to gather for the event. It's quite a treat so come and join the crowd.
