Genez gigs at Las Chicas and Vanity
Happy New Year everyone! I have been traveling like crazy lately, 6 flights in one week so writing a blog has been the last thing on my mind but here I am and I have a lot to catch up on. First things first – here is my report on two of Genez live performances in December.
The first one took place at a very chic bar in Aoyama called Las Chicas. Gow and Michael performed for the Charity event dedicated to raise funds for Ghana children. Thanks to the organizer – David, his uncle Pop and others the school construction is almost completed.

Besides Genez, there were also performers from Africa, plus David himself sang a couple of his original songs. The whole event was filmed by Lara Perez Takagi and Megumi Nishikura – young film directors from the US who are making a documentary on the lives and identity problems of mixed kids in Japan. The film is called “Hafu” which means “half” and you can watch a preview here:
They were filming African band performance when everyone including me started dancing in front of the stage which got us all into the movie as accidental extras, hehe. ^-^
Then I discovered the best organic Shea butter soap sold in the lobby.. If I happen to find that shop’s business card in the pile of junk that is my room, I’ll post it here. ^-^
Then, Gow had her biggest event of the year 2010 – “Music shower” at Roppongi’s one and only “Vanity”.
She had dancers and live band and a brand new music video, plus she looked absolutely amazing. I really hope they will release an album this year.
Surprisingly, there were an awful lot of Russians there. Either Pop has invited his whole model agency in or Gow has a lot of friends called Natasha…^-^
