Minimamus, Osaka


Unpredictable, lively, and fun, this unique group is popular across all age groups. From 2010 to 2013, they performed on the NHK TV program, “Stretch-Man Hyper” as “Asobi-Gakudan Minimamus”, and in 2015 they appeared in the movie, “Misono Universe” directed by Nobuhiro Yamashita. The group consists of four members, Hideo (four-stringed banjo), Marumushi (violin), Ryo (pocket trumpet) and Gucci (junk percussion). Although they are based in Osaka, they love to perform in many places so that they can indulge in local seasonal foods, so look out for them enjoying the booths at the Mogu Mogu Festival. Also, check out their long-awaited first album “Minimamu-Hyakkei”, released in 2014 to mark the 11th anniversary of their activity.
