Kouki to Be a Otakon 2023 Guest
Kouki, the vocalist of the Japanese visual kei rock band D=OUT, will be a guest at Otakon 2023, according to Otakorp Inc.
Not limiting themselves to just their home country, the band has toured not only in Tokyo and other parts of
Japan but in Europe and Asia as well.
Debuting as Kouki Hanamizakura, he is also a performer of enka, a more traditional Japanese music style, in addition to his visual kei rock band activities. He has achieved the number one ranking on the enka song chart in both Japan and France.
Kouki places a heavy importance on art that is unique to Japan, as he plays the tsugaru shamisen and incorporates Japanese dancing fans into his performances.
With artistic work that only he can create, he hopes that people around the world will feel moments that make their hearts dance, even just a little bit.
Otakon 2023 will be held from July 28 to July 30 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
