Romeo has already performed with Shingo and Noriko in separate groups before 2018.
Romeo and Shingo have performed together for a few oriental musical groups, for example they played with a Syrian singer „Lubana Al Quntar“ from USA for Arab Song Jam.
Romeo and Noriko have also performed together for another group.
And then he called them out to establish a new band.
