Afrirampo to disband

Rock unit Afrirampo has announced that they are disbanding after they perform their final concerts this month. Their last shows will be in Tokyo on June 12, in Nagoya on June 19, and in Osaka on June 26.

Hailing from Osaka, Afrirampo consists of vocalist/guitarist Oni and vocalist/drummer Pika (Pikachu). The two women formed the group in 2002 and scored their major label debut with the 2005 album “URUSA IN JAPAN.” That same year, they collaborated with Acid Mothers Temple for an album. Last month, Afrirampo released “WE ARE UCHU NO KO,” their first original album in close to three years.

Although they are breaking up, the two will each pursue music as solo artists. Both of them are scheduled to perform separately at an event in Roppongi on July 3.
