Description

Fujiko’s Fairy Tale (Fujiko=japanilainen tyttönimi tarkoittaen ”Talven lasta”) on matka japanilaisten anime ja manga satujen maailmaan, jossa lohikäärmeet, kummituskissat ja taianomaiset superolennot hallitsevat todellisuutta. Musiikissa soi orientaaliset vaikutteet, hiphop/dance, ja perinteisempi konserttimusiikki yhdistettynä 1980-90-lukujen videopelimusiikkiin.

Fujiko’s Fairy Tale (Fujiko=a japanese girl name meaning ”A child of winter”) is a voyage through mythology depicted in japanese manga/anime art where dragons, ghost-cats and magical super beigns rule the reality. In the music one can hear oriental influences combined with hiphop and dance beats and more traditonal contemporary concert music with a hint of the soundscapes from the videogames of the 1980’s and 90’s.
