If you’re looking for some J-Pop this weekend in London then the JAPAN MATSURI is your destination of choice.

Trafalgar Square in London is the new home for the Matsuri, the annual event that celebrates Japanese culture. Among the treats scheduled this Saturday is a performance from NAOMI SUZUKI. Among her many talents as model, actress, singer, songwriter and producer, Naomi is also part of trip hop duo AJ Unity.

Naomi and her band will be entertaining the Matsuri crowds with a selection of anime songs as well as a choice of songs from her charity CD, which benefits children who lost their parents in the 2011 earthquake and tsunami tragedy.

The Matsuri will also feature performances from FRANK CHICKENS and a shamisen recital by Hibiki & Akihiro Ichikawa. Other events include taiko drumming, Japanese dance and Lolita fashion. For the full schedule, visit the JAPAN MATSURI website.
