Wagakki Band (和楽器バンド, wagakkibando) is a Japanese band that plays rock music with wagakki (traditional Japanese musical instruments). Their early songs were adapted from Vocaloid recordings but they have since written their own original music. Their music videos for the songs "Tengaku" (天樂) and "Senbonzakura" (千本桜) have attracted millions of views on YouTube. They have played live in Asia, Europe, and the United States.

Amy Lee posted a photo with a couple of the band members at Evanescence's Synthesis Live show in Los Angeles on September 8, 2018.

Vin1.jpg I got to meet members of a group I am totally fascinated with at our show at the Greek the other day- @wagakkiband ! I almost cried when I found out they had flown all the way from Japan just to see our show! 😵😵😵 What an honor! Yuko even gave me a real performance fan and gave me a little demonstration! ❤️❤️❤️ Great to meet you guys![1] Vin2.jpg
Amy Lee and WagakkiBand

Amy performed together with Wagakki Band as a special guest at their orchestral show in Osaka, Japan on February 16, 2020. It was reported that they wrote a new song together for the event, but it wasn't performed.[2] They performed Evanescence's Bring Me to Life with traditional Japanese instruments and Senbonzakura, which was sang in Japanese.

Amy is featured on the song Sakura Rising from Wagakki Band's sixth album, Tokyo Singing, which is set to be released on October 14, 2020. The deluxe edition includes a DVD for Symphonic Orchestra concert where Amy performed as a guest.[3] Sakura Rising was released as a single on September 18, 2020. The song was produced and recorded the day before their orchestral show, but it was finished through file sharing due to the coronavirus pandemic.[4]
