Facts about Choucho


Choucho is a part of the Asamakku family with Asamaru and Jack (and Tourai, Keisen, etc.). She has a powerful voice that can reach both extremely low and high notes. One of the reasons I like her covers a lot is because she sings the words clearly.

Before being a part of Asamakku family, Choucho also performs with an amateur band named Lotus Lotus. When she started recording songs, they weren't mixed very well. Thanks to Asamaru, her songs are always professional-sounding :3. She currently is an exchange student in Canada, but she comes home from time to time to attend live events and collaborate with other musicians such as [TEST].

The info here are taken from Choucho's blog and profile pages.
