Kalafina will be performing on the first night of the convention, May 17, 2013, at the Akoo Theatre. This performance will be Kalafina’s first full band performance in the U.S. Ticketing information will be released on the Anime Central Website and will only be open to those who have already purchased admission to Anime Central 2013.
Kalafina is a Japanese female vocal trio produced by the hit-making sound producer, Yuki Kajiura. Keiko, Wakana, and Hikaru, the members of Kalafina, have voices that perfectly match the music composed by Kajiura. Each member takes the main vocal in turn, with alternating backing vocals and part variations, and their beautiful harmony captivates the audience to lead them into the world of Kalafina’s mystical music.
The following singles “Kagayaku Sorano Shijimaniwa”, “Magia”, “to the beginning” and “Hikarifuru” had been used as the theme songs of hit animes such as “Black Butler II”, “PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGICA” and “Fate/Zero”. With this powerful tie-in and the fan-base they have established through their performance, they are enjoying increased popularity in Japan and abroad alike.
