(UPDATED: June 10, 2012)

The duo known as roconamente features a lady named Yuki and a fellow named Masato. Yuki is a super-cute girl who wears some fun outfits while singing covers of anime songs as well as certain other songs. Masato is sort of the man behind the scenes putting the whole deal together. I do enjoy Yuki with her cute singing and fun videos. However, you don't hear or see Masato. I want to try to make mention to both members of roconamente in this blog post. This blog post will just introduce you to the duo known as roconamente.


JU 10 2012 - made various edits, added content

--- roconamente ---

Here are the two who make up roconamente:

Yuki roconamente
^ from:, by way of - Yuki, of roconamente. She's the cutie who sings her heart out and has fun with costumes in her songs.

Masato roconamente
^ from:, by way of - Masato, of rocanamente. He's the guy who helps out in arranging the music and a lot of the accompanying instrumentals.

roconamente mostly does cover songs of anime songs and even a few other songs. The two formed roconamente in 2008. Yuki is the one singing sweetly and wearing cute costumes to make the videos fun. From her bio on roconamente's home page, Yuki is a graduate of Kyoto University, and she has composed and sang music for roconamente since roconamente was formed. She wears some nice outfits to get into the flow of the music. Masato is the one who provides a lot of the accompanying music and work to make their music. Masato has been involved with guitar music since 1993. His career of playing at clubs and in making CDs goes back to 2000 And in 2008, he lent his work to roconamente. Their music has been featured on Japanese stations such as J-WAVE and NHK. They have even had their music recognized in January 2010 for the Yokohama Music Awards when "Cosmic?Rendez-Vous" was nominated as one of the Monthly Artist entries. I don't know if they won the Monthly Artist honors for January 2010 or not (after using Google Translate to translate Japanese), but they were at least honored for their work.

(ADDED: June 10, 2012)
Yuki launched an individual channel where she shares some more lighthearted content. It is popular, however, because of Yuki sharing some Japanese lessons to others. She teaches hiragana and some basic Japanese on her YouTube channel called "RoconaticAngel." A link to her other YouTube channel will be included later in this blog post.

Roconamente won J-MELO's Star Search competition earlier this year. J-MELO is a Japanese music program done entirely in English. My congratulations go out to Roconamente on a job well done.

That's as much as I know on roconamente!
