4th Radiotaku Sessions: Sagashimono

Feb 14, 2012

It’s been a long time since we’ve had our Radiotaku Sessions. We’ve been craving for another great recording and interview for the longest time now. And we’ve been hoping for that ever since Christmas (2011) too! As luck (and a bit of time management) would have it, Santa got our Christmas wishlist answered just in time for the season of love.

Fret not, Radiotaku listeners! We’ve got something special for you in this month of February!

Presenting, our next featured band for Radiotaku Sessions is:

SAGASHIMONO!

Composed of the following members:
Janelle Cahilig on vocals
Ralph Amparo on lead guitar
Daichi on rhythm guitar
April Bondoc on bass
Lee Saballe on drums
Gio Cerdeña on Keyboards

We were all smitten by the sweet-sounding vocals and colorful rhythms that the band delivers in every performance. Surely, convention-goers and fans alike would certainly agree to the same notion. Lucky for us, we’ll be having an inside look into the band, plus a mini-album of song covers filled with their own music style.

The recording will be held this February 19, 2012, Sunday at Iron Tribe Recording Studio.

Fans and friends of Sagashimono may send their questions, greets and messages via the comments section below, or on Otakultura’s Facebook page.
You may also send your messeages via Twitter: @otakultura with the hashtag #Radiotaku

We encourage everyone to send in your messages and other stuff!

Podcast of Radiotaku Sessions will be released a week after the recording.

    anyway, naging fan ako ng sagashimono nung first time ko sila mapanood sa kodomo bar, and anata dake mitsumeteru yung unang song na narinig ko, after nun lagi na sila yung inaabangan ko tumugtog pag cons. pag tumutugtog na sagashimono dumadami tao and nakikisabay pa kumanta yung iba which is nakakatuwang mawitness :)

  5. 1. How and when are you formed?

    2. When was your first practice in a band rehearsal studio and how did it go?

    3. I know what’s the meaning of sagashimono, but why did you choose it as a band name and where did you get it?

  6. Cheers to Sagashimono! Enjoy lang sa jamming and recording guys.
    After ng recording, gawa naman ng album cover tapos i-public release! XDD.

    God speed guys \o.

    */apir to ja-neechan and gio-chan.*

  7. Hello ,Ate ang galing ninyo po ng boyfriend ninyo sa pinoy utaite , yun kinanta ninyo po yun Just be friends .Goodluck po!

  8. Sana umabot ‘tong tanong na ‘to! Simpleng-simple lang: para ‘to sa lahat ng myembro ng Sagashimono.

    People may have asked you about your favorite songs, but what is the song that best describes you?

    ‘Yun lang, and more power sa inyo!

    Hello, first time here XD I’m a huge fan of Sagashimono especially their vocalist, Janelle-san (aka Nachi). When I heard her sing for the first time, I was really moved; I thought that aside from her good choice of song, the way she sang it was just simply moving. Tipong “ang galeng naman netong taong to” yung naisip ko. I wanted to hear more from her after that so I went to a convention kung saan tutugtog daw yung banda niya. Buti na lang nagpunta ako kasi narinig ko kung gano kagaling yung banda, tapos simula nun naging fan nako ;A; Gusto ko kasi yung quality nung mga kanta nila, halatang pinaguukulan talaga nila ng panahon. Sana mas dumami pa ang mga events na pupuntahan nyo.

    Sana magkaroon din kayo ng mga recorded songs/covers para pwede ilagay sa mp3 player hehe. More power sa banda nyo!
    For me the best ang Sagashimono sa mga anime conventions na tipong minsan kayo lang pinupunta ko dun >A< Ganon po kayo kagaling para sa akin. Please continue to inspire more people with your songs, especially Janelle-san; you have the voice that's able to move the hearts of your listeners ^^

    Mga pahabol na tanong:
    1. May plano ba kayong tumugtog ng mga sarili nyong kanta balang araw at kung mabibigyan ng pagkakataon?
    2. Bukod sa Japanese songs, trip nyo din ba yung English or Tagalog songs?
    3. Sa bawat kantang tutugtugin nyo sa mga events, paano kayo nagdedecide? Or pano kayo pumipili ng kanta?
    4. Ano ang inspirasyon nyo sa pagtugtog? What keeps you motivated despite the many problems that each and every one has?
    5. What are the preparations that you do before performing?

    PS: Sana pagpatuloy nyo pa po talaga ang pagtugtog. Thank you for sharing your music, Sagashimono \o/

  10. Hello Sagashimono! Keep it up! Ang galing nyo! Nakakamangha at nakakainspire~ Hello kay Master Janelle at Master Gio! :D

  12. zup yo ma niggas!

    Greetings from the land down under, Western Australia!

    favor naman, pahingi ng mp3s na magiging recording nyo! ^___^

    anyway eto mga tanong ko…

    anung meron sa band nyo na wala sa iba?

    - alam naman naten lahat ng bands may kanya kanyang specialty, etc etc…anu yung sa inyo (yung tipong kahit nasa labas ako ng megatrade hall at nadinig kong may tumutugtog sa loob alam kong sagashimono yun.)

    paano nyo dinidisiplina mga sarili nyo sa pag-eensayo?

    - obviously naman nakikita sa performance nyo yung level ng perfection sa pag approach nyo sa covers. paano nyo ginagawa yun?

    yun lang hehehe

    anyway Good luck and more gigs to cum
