Hatsune Miku is a “digital diva” her songs are created using special software and the sampled voice of the voice actress Saki Fujita. The songs are then brought to life using amazing 3D projections on a live stage in front of huge crowds of fans.
The type of music she sing falls under the Vocaloid (ボーカロイド Bōkaroido) genre, I am not a major follower of this music however since attending cosplay events over the past few years I have started to hear it more and more. Also this music seems to becoming ever more popular throughout the world not only in Japan.
Below is my favorite song of the live performances to give you more of an idea of what it looks and sounds like when put together.
Another Vocaloid song I love is Happy Synthesizer.
I really hope that one day Hatsune Miku will come to the UK as I would love to see it for myself.
If you love Japanese things I would reccomend that you check out some of the Vocaloid dance video’s on Youtube as there are some brillian dancers out there and this trend seems to be spreading accross the world like wild fire.
