Raiden’s Yosakoi Performance at the Japanmarkt 2012

Here are two videos of the yosakoi performance by the Leiden University Yosakoi group ‘Raiden’ (雷電) in the garden of the Sieboldhuis in Leiden on Sunday 27 May 2012. The first is an original medley, the second a more traditional routine.

Yosakoi is a very energetic, relatively modern style of Japanese dance, combining traditional styles of dancing with modern music. Click here for more information on Wikipedia, because I don’t know that much about it myself.

Enjoy the videos!

Still alive, have a video!

Yes, I am still alive!

I got a bit caught up with buying a new camera (an ass-kicking Nikon D7000), playing games (Ghost Recon Online beta and DayZ), and taking final exams (which I should’ve almost all passed), and this little site got pushed to the side a bit.

Anyway, I’m back now, and I’ve been to the Japanmarkt (Japanese Market) today, organised by the Sieboldhuis in Leiden. The weather was absolutely beautiful, so I got to play around with my camera for a bit. Shot a few photos and a few short videos, the first of which you can watch below. The others I’ll upload over the next few days, as well as the photo-review for Fiolina Germi. Hopefully once that’s all done I’ve received the film-lamp I ordered, and I can finally shoot proper indoor video footage for the unboxings to come, so watch out for that.

Here’s the first video, one of Taiko Kids’ short performances outside the Sieboldhuis, enjoy!
