Irulanne ~ Calgary Japanese Omatsuri Festival 2016

Après avoir manqué l’édition de l’année dernière due à notre voyage en Europe, je suis retournée chanter au Festival Japonais de Calgary Samedi passé.
Malheureusement, rien n’a changé…
Malgré que j’ai chanté du mieux que j’ai pu, l’accoustique terrible de la scène et l’ajout inutile d’écho ont pratiquement ruiné ma performance. De plus, le son dans les moniteurs étaient si fort et si distorsionné, je pouvais à peine me concentrer sur ma chanson. Je rêve du jour où je pourrai chanter à nouveau sur une scène professionelle.
Mais les gens ont apprécié donc c’est ce qui compte! :)

After missing last year’s Japanese Festival, I was back to sing at the Omatsuri last weekend.
Unfortunately, nothing has changed. I did the best I could but the poor acoustic, the excessive echo and the distorted vocals coming back from the stage monitors ruined my performance. Overall, it’s not *that bad* but I dream of the day I’ll be back singing on a professionally managed stage where I don’t sound like that. But people appreciated the performance so I guess it’s all good :)

Going back to the Sailor Moon musical!

It is completely by coincidence that I will be returning to Tokyo in October this year to catch the newest Sailor Moon Musical :)

This is so exciting! I was there for Marina Kuroki’s first musical as Sailor Moon in 2001. I was also there for Satomi Okubo’s first musical as Sailor Moon in 2013. I will also be there for Hotaru’s first musical as Sailor Moon in 2016. When I was in Japan back in January, the amount of Sailor Moon stuff in stores was phenomenal. With the success of Sailor Moon Crystal 3, the continuous Sailor Moon cafés around Japan and this upcoming musical, I am afraid I will Sailor Moon’d myself to death during this new trip ! :)

More information coming soon.
