*From Wikipedia*

Depapepe Japanese (デパペペ), is a music group originating from Japan . The acoustic guitar duo is composed of Takuya Miura (born 5 April 1983) and Yoshinari Takuoka (born on 15 July 1977), who formed in 2002.
They made their major debut in 2005 with their album “Let’s Go!!!”, which generated sales figures of about 100,000 and ranked within the top 10 of Oricon’s Instrumental Artist Debut Chart. Before that, they had released three indie albums.
The name itself comes from the combination of both short names of the band members, by combining the Japanese word for overbite, ‘deppa’, and the name of Takuoka’s previous band ‘DERUPEPE’. Contrary to a popular rumour circulating among their fans, the two guitarists are not brothers. In their 2002 formation the pair joined with the Sony Music. They also worked on some guitar pieces for the "Honey and Clover" anime series.

------------------------------------------

Okay enough with background info. Now on serious talk.

I've been a Depapepe fan for about a year and a half now, and I'm love 'em. Their music is very versatile - they have Spanish instrumentals (which I think is their greatest influence) to jazz to somewhat rock arrangements.They are very skilled guitarists, improv-wise and speed-wise, while not being to show-y (in this I mean they don't break out into a 4 minute guitar solo random shredding and stuff).
They also have covers of classical pieces like Canon, Bolero, Air in G-String, etc - actually they have 2 albums of classical songs they rearranged as guitar pieces.
What I love about them s their ability to actually "move" you - invoke the feelings their songs try to deliver. You must just listen to their songs, they can relax you, make you cry, give you the feeling that you're strolling on the beachside..

I recommend this duo to anyone - Jpop/Kpop fan, metalhead, classical listeners - ANYONE. IT's worth listening to, and I'm sure you'll find a song you'll want to hear everytime before you sleep. Happy
I suggest you listen to their songs Start, Snow Dance, Katana, This Way and Summer Parade to get a grasp of how they play. Sorry for the long blocks of text, though :D

Happy listening! Happy

Whoa it's a long time since I last visited SH haha.
Yeah, I love their music. Simply beautiful. And I like the fact that they're not afraid to go out of their comfort zone, as shown in Special Lady ~ The Wedding Anthem and This Way.

My friend and I usually jam their songs in school and everyone would go like..."dude is that your composition? you guys are awesome...", and we would just laugh and say "naw it's from one of our favorite bands."
