event advertisement: Kenya Matsuri in Nagoya 3/14/2010  
Hi everyone, I know most of you are not in Japan, but there's a big parapara event happening this Sunday called Kenya Matsuri, and Disco NRG is one of the offical supporters of this event. In case you don't know, Kenya is a techno legend who was one of the pioneers of the techno scene about 10 years ago, and even today he's a very active and respected member of the parapara community. Every couple of years he puts on his event called Kenya Matsuri to celebrate techno and parapara.

The great thing about Kenya is that he is the number one supporter of overseas parapara that I've met. He believes that the future of parapara is in the overseas scene. Parapara is dying out in Japan and he believes we need to expend globally to keep the scene alive. He's interviewed me about overseas parapara and even included a section on it in the book that he is writing. I'm really grateful that he treats us like equal members of the scene.

And this is why he decided to include overseas para teams in the sponsors for this years event. There are three foreign teams on the sponsor list: Disco NRG, Euro Elite, and Diamond 7. Unfortunately none of us will be able to be at the event in person, but let's support it from afar!

The last Kenya Matsuri had such a different oldschool cool vibe that other events didn't have.

Best of luck to him and his crew =)
