Have you heard of JERO? He’s the newest craze in Japan’s Enka scene!
Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, Jero is an African American who is one-quarter Japanese, with a voice and attitude of a career Enka singer! His late grandmother from Japan turned him onto Japanese Enka.
We heard rumors of him recently and checked him out on Youtube. His debut single “Umiyuki” (Ocean Snow) is ranked No. 4 on Japan’s Oricon Charts, and he appears to be unstoppable. Click here to see his latest video. As promoters of Japanese pop culture, we’re excited for Jero’s future success.
