Charan Po Rantan
“Charan-po-rantan” means sloppy or irresponsible in Japanese, and obviously the name of this free-wheeling sister duo is a wordplay of the phrase.
19 year old vocalist, Momo, and 23 year old accordion player, Koharu formed CHARAN-PO-RANTAN in 2009, and have gone on to win several awards.
Their music is a melting pot of Chanson, Gypsy music, popular Japanese music from the 50s-60s, etc. The young duo’s live performances at live venues as well as street performances are entertaining and explosive for all ages.
