MIZUKAGAMI is a contemporary Japanese group from Tokyo that was founded by former members of PEDIMENT. The group consists of Tanaami Futaba (vocals, flute), Junya Anan (keyboards, Japanese percussion), Keiichi Yanagawa (bass), Yasuo Asakura (guitars, theorbe) and Keita Kamiyama (drums, ethnic percussion). The music is classic seventies influenced symphonic progressive with some elements from traditional Japanese music adding some Oriental feel. It is a little more on the atmospheric side than your average Japanese symphonic group. In this sense they can be compared to the other Japanese group CINEMA but they are rather similar to groups such as PAGEANT and PROVIDENCE as well. The debut album, simply titled "Mizukagami", was released in 2003. It is a highly symphonic work but it has some influences from other genres as well. The music is centred on the keyboard work of Junya Anan who is also the composer of the songs. His playing consists of fast keyboard runs and tapestries of synths. The female vocalist, a common detail in Japanese symphonic groups, ads delicacy with her refined vocals and flute playing. MIZUKAGAMI is top-notch Japanese symphonic!
