Japanese sure knows how to get every single dime out of the fan girls. These CDs varies from 10.99+free shipping to $116+shipping. I guess I’m getting the US version vinyl copy with the downloand card. That way, I could have my music on the computer too.

Kaya at Pacific Media Expo

Kaya live at PMX. Kaya will be live and in concert at Pacific Music Live, and will be attending a panel session and signing autographs at Pacific Media Expo.

Join the facebook event for this concert.

Beauty, grace, sexuality, and elegance are the themes of Kaya, one of Japan’s most prominent vocalists.

First gaining notoriety as the vocalist of the EBM phenomenon Schwarz Stein, Kaya embarked on a solo career starting in 2006. With song writers such as Hora (ex. Schwarz Stein), Kalm (ex. Velvet Eden), and Hizaki (Versailles), Kaya‘s songs have wide range from electronica, to EBM, to trance, to symphonic, and jazz. His vocal ability is unparalleled as he graces every song with his soulfully powerful, operatic singing that leave lasting impressions on those that hear it.

BTW, I love the song Chocolat!
