Have you ever seen a drummer in an animal costume absolutely destroy at a children’s music concert? You need to watch the video at the bottom of this article.
The highlight of this children’s music concert in Japan is definitely the drummer who can’t help but bring the fury. The double kick lets you know that he is a kickass batsman.
The mascot, whose name is Nyango Star, represents the town of Kurioishi in Aomori Prefecture in Japan. Since the region is known for its apples, the mascot is partly cat and partly apple.
The video below of the absolutely destructive mascot at a children’s music concert in Japan has over 30 million views on YouTube and 1.4 million likes and it’s easy to see why.
âThe man literally has double kickers, there’s no way it’s not intentional,â one commentator on the post suggests, while another points out: âThe lady who just casually fell out for that this guy’s face melts is the best part. “
âI don’t care if it’s a kids’ concert, I DEDICATE THIS SONG TO NEIL PEART,â a commentator of the video hilariously responds. While another likens it to “what a metal drummer does when all of his friends get married and have kids.”
Nyango Star has his Youtube channel, which includes videos of them covering songs from Slipknot, Babymetal and Linkin Park, rocking with heavy metal band Maximum Hormone and covering a song from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
The drummer does not only play in children’s music concerts, they play festivals and other concerts too, not just for the youngest.
