Artist details


Bio / info
"Ultra lunatic" duo from Osaka, Japan. Oni (Takemasa Mayūmi - guitar, vocals) and Pika (Higashi Mineko - drums, vocals) started the band in May 2002 at a jam in the park of Osaka's castle. While their local popularity grew extremely fast, they went to live with the Pygmies of Cameroon in the summer of 2004. They have since often toured the USA, Europe, and even Turkey, playing along the likes of Sonic Youth, Masonna, Jojo Hiroshige, and Acid Mothers Temple. Afrirampo's lyrics generally consist of simple mantras, when not completely onomatopoeic. On stage, the two almost always appear costumed in red. Disbanded on June 26, 2010.
