Get ready for a candy-coated cabaret with sisters Koharu (accordion) and Momo (vocals), who comprise the effervescent pop duo Charan-Po-Rantan. Known for their original music that incorporate the beats and melodies of pop, klezmer, circus, gypsy music and chanson as well as their covers of retro Japanese popular songs, the two perform within a rainbow of unpredictable visuals and stylings.

The night includes the New York-based jazz combo The Red Birds and a Charan-Po-Rantan-inspired Halloween fête where we’ll be serving up a signature Charan-cocktail. Come in colorful costume!

Come early and enjoy For a New World to Come! Japan Society Gallery will be open until 8 PM and admission is free to ticketholders.

Hear (and see!) more from Charan-Po-Rantan here!
