We're creating the music, using traditional japanese instruments with popular music instruments.

Our music has percussive and strange rhythm & melody.
It's Phantasmagoric mechanism music.

Not "Just a traditional inheritance", Of course, it is not even "destruction of tradition".
The creation of popular music of modern Japan with a sense.
