ZUKUNASISTERS is a Japanese female soul band consisting of four classmates in university: emi, spicy-marico, 238 and Akane. Having been strongly influenced by black music, ZUKUNASISTERS’ music is a blend of 60’s to 70’s R&B, soul, and gospel. The band’s unique groove and dramatic chorus work is indeed the product of members’ chemistry. Emi’s singing which is often referred to as Janis Joplin and Aretha Franklin, and the band’s tireless energy and vibes inflame and thrill the audience – the performance you will never forget. In 2005 the band signed with UK Project and released “GOTiSOUL”. In 2007 the band began a bimonthly one-man live show at Shibuya BYG. The show has been taken place at Shimokitazawa CLUB QUE since 2009. ZUKUNASISTERS has appeared in a number of Japanese music festivals including FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL (2006, 2009), SUNSET LIVE (2006), ARABAKI ROCK FESTIVAL (2009), EARTHDAY TOKYO (2009), MINAMI WHEEL (2008, 2009), and MANGETSU-SAI (from 2006 to 2008, 2010). In 2011 the four girls fully prepared for the upcoming US tour, decided on calling themselves “ZUKUNASISTERS” to identify themselves in overseas markets, while keeping “ZUKUNASI” strictly for the Japanese market. Believing in the power of music, ZUKUNASISTERS keeps on creating compelling melodies and great beats. Real soul music & women’s power at its best yet, ZUKUNASISTERS is bound to be a central figure in the music scene of the new decade.
