COKURi was introduced to MINYO, a traditional Japanese Folk-style music during the earliest moments of her childhood.

Always motivated to broaden her musical horizons, she loves performing whenever possible. And, don’t let her petite size fool you! COKURi may be tiny, but she’s a package of dynamite, with a powerful voice that has earned her a lot of praise and demands much attention every time she performs.

Dancin’ Machine MiKA is a treat to watch and hear.
MiSUZU is also a trained dancer who excelled during her university days. However, due to an unfortunate automobile accident after graduation, she had to discontinue her dream of dancing. Luckily for us, she did not let this difficultly stop her from lifting herself up. Still wanting to take the stage as a performer, she began singing. And since doing so, she has found her true calling, proving that even after hardship, we can still achieve happiness through hard work and positive thinking. MiSUZU is a true champion of spirit.
