Anime Festival Asia 2015 Indonesia
is just a day away! Will you be there? This event happens from September 25th to 27th at JIEXPO in Kemayoran, Central Jakarta.
Before all the excitement and frenzy, JPOPASIA had the chance to exchange some thoughts with musical guests GARNiDELiA
and motsu x KAYA
. Read about what they had to say in our short interview with them below:
motsu x KAYA
1. What has inspired you to form motsu x KAYA?
motsu: When I went around the world as m.o.v.e. , KAYA accompanied me as a DJ. As time passed, we shared our thoughts and felt that simple yet exciting style of a DJ and MC unit was needed in festivals such as J-Culture. That was the beginning.
2. Any special performance that you will show to Indonesian fans at AFA ID this year?
motsu: For every event, we usually research carefully as each area has a totally different Japanese animation history or preferences. So this time we would like you to look forward to how our performance is reflected by our research of Indonesia.
3. If you can be a superhero, what kind of super power you want to have?
motsu: To be honest, I would like to become King Crimson in Jojo. It means I would like to get a power of stopping time.
KAYA: I think the power of teleportation is awesome. I wish I can become Goku in Dragon ball.
4. Please tell us about your project plan after AFAID 2015?
motsu: I will remain in Indonesia and start leading a vagabond life alone. Just kidding. I will work on our music while considering DJ activities. Next month, we will have an one-man concert for ALTIMA so I will focus on it.
KAYA: I am producing CTS, which is an undercover unit, and will be going into that production with earnest.
1. What do all of you hope from Indonesia fans when the time of performance?
We joined AFA ID last year, too. It’s impressive that Indonesian audience sang together. This year, we hope we can get closer to them mentally.
2. What's makes GARNiDELIA different with other band?
Original sound and visual world. All self-produced by two of us.
3. What is your latest single / album about?
Indies best album “BiRTHiA” was released on Aug.26. Fourteen tracks at independent label era for the last 5 years were re-recorded, and 1 new track is added. In short, this is the album containing 15 tracks.
4. Tell us about your project plan after AFAID 2015?
GARNiDELiA 3rd solo concert will be held at Toyosu PIT on Nov.7. Hope Indonesian fans will come and watch it. Also, we’ll perform at AFA Singapore late November.
5. Can all of you give message to J-pop Asia Readers and Indonesia fans?
We’re very happy to see all of Indonesian fans. Let’s make an enjoyable night together.
