As part of the 50th anniversary of ASEAN-Japan friendship and cooperation, the Japan Foundation will present concerts named CHAI “NEO KAWAII NIGHT in Laos and Cambodia” by CHAI, a dynamic all-female band.
Japanese rock has been popular since the 1970s and has continued to develop its own unique style. To bring Japanese-style rock music, CHAI, known for embodying a “NEO Kawaii” motto through their music and which continues to shock listeners with their remarkable songwriting sense and overwhelming performances, will make
appearances in Laos and Cambodia for the first time.
Asserting that everyone has their own version of “cute,” CHAI introduced a new concept of kawaii (cute) called “NEO Kawaii.” The concerts will be a night to celebrate the friendship between Japan, Laos and Cambodia while experiencing the new value “NEO Kawaii” created by CHAI through music.
