Kaguyahime

Kaguyahime was an iconic Japanese folk/pop rock band that originally formed in 1970. By the end of the decade, the group were at the top of the industry, and their soft-spoken style helped usher in a new popular form of music that would help bands like Off Course truly dominate the Japanese mainstream.

Kaguyahime was an iconic Japanese folk/pop rock band that originally formed in 1970. By the end of the decade, the group were at the top of the industry, and their soft-spoken style helped usher in a new popular form of music that would help bands like Off Course truly dominate the Japanese mainstream. In 1985, after years of being on-and-off, Kaguyahime finally decided to pull the plug, and the members all went on to solo careers, with frontman Kosetsu Minami arguably garnering the biggest success. In 1999, after over a decade apart, Kaguyahime was suddenly reignited, and the group released "Seishun no Itami" and "Best Dreamin'", their first single and album release since 1984. "Best Dreamin'" was also Kaguyahime's first compilation album release as well, but sales were lackluster to say the least, and the group then disbanded once more in 2001. Kaguyahime was then revived once more from 2005 until 2006. Despite their seemingly not-warm return, Kaguyahime are still considered to be one of Japan's biggest groundbreaking bands in the field of folk music, and their legacy remains to be quite significant to this day. « hide
