What is Japanese Gypsy Rock? "Cultural Confusion is our specialty," confides bandleader and founder Kaz Fujimoto, as he drains the last of his Guinness. This cat is a Japanese Gypsy -- you can tell from his personal style -- maybe it's the colorful scarf, aviator goggles or his proper English accent. No, it's the pants. The guy has great pants. The sound has been described as a melting pot of tonalities and rhythms from Asia, the Middle East, South America and Eastern Europe -- "Cultural Confusion". Sometimes the songs are beautiful imagery, sometimes sad folk tales, and sometimes silly songs about drinking. But the tunes are always fun, and the show is often a very high energy, dancing good time. Kagero’s world music goulash is very tasty -- even if you don’t know what’s you’re eating. Just call us your local neighborhood urban-gypsophonic, border-jumping, international debtor’s prison groove-loving feel-good band next door.
