Jero (aka Jerome White) is coming to Los Angeles. The first African-American enka singer in Japanese (world?) history will be performing at the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center JACCC on March 31, 2010. Enka is a Japanese musical style that arose in the post-war years. I am not aware of any foreigner becoming a successful enka singer and it is even more unique with Jero's hip-hop style. Jero has become quite famous in Japan but I am not certain how well known he is here so I was surprised to hear he was playing a show in Los Angeles. Of course, the showing is at a theater in the Little Tokyo district in downtown LA so he may get a good turnout from the local Japanese-American community.
