Entertainment
We’re thrilled to welcome Harp & Soul as our featured performers for the night!

10325740_718033698317597_315224805812021567_nHarp and Soul is a 4 woman band made up of musicians who have been working together and decided to play their favorite tunes together. Vocalist and songwriter Aimee Blackschleger is a singer whose voice has been heard in many commercials, game and anime songs in Japan. Her original songs and lyrics are one of a kind, emotional and overwhelmingly beautiful – the members are always on the verge of tears every time she introduces a new song. Hikari Duncan has been grabbing the hearts of many, singing at live shows and weddings, with her exceptionally deep and soulful voice. Percussionist Gisappe comes from a rock background, having played the drums since she was 13. She has taken up the cajon, which is a box-shaped drum originally used in Afro-Peruvian music, to add a heartbeat to the band. Finally, Kaoru Arai plays the harp – the concert grand harp as well as the Irish harp, to accompany and add color to this unique indie/pop girl-band.

Check out some of their performances HERE and HERE.
