Next Music from Tokyo is a non-profit cross-Canada tour showcasing the best independent and underground music from Japan. Zazen Boys, NATSUMEN, group_inou, Akai Koen, sgt., Charan-Po-Rantan, and Mass of the Fermenting Dregs are just a few examples of the great bands that have participated thusfar.
In May 2013, NMFT vol 5 brings another spectacular line-up headlined by mouse on the keys. Their turbocharged fusion of post-rock and jazz coupled with highly energetic, emotional performances on stage have made them one of the most sought after Japanese bands by music festivals around the world. They are joined by the soaring shoegaze of Kinoko Teikoku, the high-powered melodic punk of Harafromhell and fan favorites チーナ (chi-na) who are the first band to make a repeat performance on the Next Music from Tokyo tour.
