At the beginning of 2003, having released their second album "13 leaves" and after vocalist Chisako Mikami announced her marriage and pregnancy. In May of the same year--still without a new contract--Chisako gave birth to a baby daughter. Fra-foa broke up after playing a concert on May 14, 2005. The group's name "fra-foa" did not have any significant meaning. Chisako Mikami invented this name by the pronunciation of this word which represented a kind of floating feeling or image.
The imagery of fra-foa's music is energetic vocals like a flashing blue light out of the roaring sound of distorted guitars and drums. Live performances were very essential to fra-foa. Audiences perceived their tremendous energy release as well as catharsis from their performance. Mikami began a solo career in 2004, but has been inactive musically since 2005. Read more on Last.fm.
