myspace band of the week


Hyogen (่กจ็พ) is Mayu Gonto (vocals, accordion), Kimiya Sato (vocals, violin), Kuya Sonoda (bass) and Baku Furukawa (vocals, guitar) from Tokyo. Kuya and their former guitarist formed this folk band in 2005 and their first work was the soundtrack of the dance performance “่„ˆๆ‹ (Myaku-Haku, Pulse Beat)” for Yukina Sakai. Their self-titled album was released in 2009 and their drummer quit the band soon after. When Mayu joined on accordion, hyogen decided to perform as an acoustic band.

Their first album is available at Amazon and CD Baby and their newest at Jet Set Records. You can download a few live sets at their SoundCloud.
