GIBIER du MARI live at the J.E. Live House on Saturday, July 3rd!
Famous as a singer, Mari NATSUKI is also known as a dancer, actress, performer, writer… and dubber since she is the voice of the old witch Yubaba in Spirited Away (Hayao MIYAZAKI)!
She became famous as soon as she started her career. Afterwards she worked on many projects, some of them allowing her a worldwide success, for instance in France since she was “French-Japanese Friendship Ambassador 2009” and performed in the conceptual theatre performance Impressionist, at the Festival d’Avignon!
In 2006, Mari NATSUKI created GIBIER du MARI with seasoned musicians, a blues band with hints of pop and rock music, carried along by her bewitching voice! Apart from the singer, the band has five members: Nobu SAITO for percussion; Masayuki HIGUCHI for drums; ichiro for guitar; Tomoharu "Jr" TAKAHASHI for bass; and Kazuyuki TAKEKOSHI for keyboards!
