It’s that time of the year when Japan Foundation Manila brings to the country exciting and awesome idols from Japan and this time they are bringing Diana Garnet, Joe Inoue and THE BEATMOTORS to hold Spinning Manila: J-Pop Live! concert on February 28 at Whitespace Manila.Spinning-Manila-J-Pop-Live-Diana-Garnet

Naruto Cosplayers PH is one of the official Japanese Pop Culture Community partner for the event.  The event starts at five in the afternoon, Whitespace Manila along Chino Roces Avenue, Makati City. Admission to the concert is free, but online registration, which is open from January 12 at noon, is required at http://spinningmanila.eventbrite.com.

Diana Garnet is the singer behind the hit single Spinning World, the closing theme for Naruto Shippuden.  Diana is a US-born recording artist whose life-long passion for anime Spinning-Manila-JPOP-Live-Joepropelled her to achieve her dream of becoming a singer in Japan. In the process, she also mastered the Japanese language. In 2013, she won Nihon TV’s singing contest for foreigners, Nodojiman THE WORLD, which paved the way for her debut album COVER ☆ GIRL.

We will also witness the return of our beloved, Joe Inoue.  He is a Japanese singer born and raised in Los Angeles, California, where he grew up in an environment filled with music and manga. In 2007, he debuted with his first EP titled IN A WAY. He is best known for CLOSER, which was used as the opening theme for Naruto Shippuden.

Completing the lineup is the upcoming band THE BEATMOTORS composed of Masahi Akiba, Tetsuro Kimura, Johnny Yanagawa, and Takahiro Shikano. Their music was described as systematically simple with a bit of an edge that makes their live performances shine.

1617292_727917667218948_1557823165_oTo the young and the forever-young, Japan is almost synonymous with anime, manga, and the distinctly kawaii~ (cute) and kakkoii~ (cool) pop culture that covers everything from music to fashion. At Spinning Manila: J-Pop Live! enjoy the Japanese-flavored upbeat music in your best cosplay garb.


Aside from the concert, there are two other things to get excited about. There’s the Facebook Cosplay Photo Contest to be launched second week of January. Also, all three artists will make an appearance at the JFM’s annual event showcasing Japanese language, arts and culture: Nihongo Fiesta 2016, on February 27 (Saturday) at Shangri-La Plaza.

Spinning Manila: J-Pop Live! is supported by Canon Marketing (Philippines), and media partners Hero TV and WhenInManila.com, with special thanks to Cosplay Café, Cosplay PH, Naruto Cosplayers PH and Otaku Asia.
