CHOCOLAT & AKITO / ショコラ&アキト - One (acoustic version)

She's Chocolat / ショコラ and he's Akito / アキト. They are both musician artists with their own projects and they created their duet collaboration, simply called "Chocolat & Akito" (in Japanese "ショコラ&アキト"), on Rallye Label. They released the album "Duet" and the EP "Tobira / 扉".

She's "a musician, a jewelry designer and a voice-over artist". She creates handmade jewelry called "Corchea", particularly colorful earrings (like the ones she's wearing on the video). See her online shop and collections : website / Facebook. I know that she did the female voice on the "Ah" song on the interactive web page of the Japanese educative show on NHK for children in order to make them discover design called "Design-ah / デザインあ" (that show is really great).
