Beatboxing Monk DJ to Headline Zipangu Opening Party

The Zipangu film festival opens it curtains for a second year next week, and marks the occasion in the way we like best – with an all out  party set to tickle the audio and optical sensory systems! Set to hit London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts on Friday 18 November 2011, the opening shenanigans feature four musical acts, visual performances and is free to all ticket holders of the festival’s opening films KanZeOn and Shirome – otherwise tickets cost £5 and are available to book in advance from the ICA homepage.

One of the main draws to the party is a performance from the badboy beatboxing Buddhist monk DJ ta2mi, who features in KanZeOn. Plus tunes from the Japan-inspired music maker KidKanevil, Paul Fisher of import shop Far Side Music,  a set from Kper and another from shi_ne_ko_sei, who will be joined by KanZeOn’s co-director to play tracks that inspired the whole project.

We’ll see you there, but for the meantime here’s the trailer for KanZeOn.


About Tom Smith
Some say he's fuelled on nothing but energy drinks, and that when he visits Japan, he spends the whole time engaging the ground in an all too familiar way. But what we do know is that his words on the country's entertainment and culture find their way into NEO Magazine on a monthly basis, while everything else finds its way here. Be it quirky news item from the Land of the Rising Sun, or a story so gruesome it'd be rude not to pass it on, you'll find it here along with his general posts about life, work and most importantly play. And yes, he has had articles printed in the likes of MCV, GamesMaster, 360 Gamer and more, thanks for noticing.
