ALI PROJECT, known colloquially as Alipro, is a two member Japanese pop unit. They formed sometime in the late 1980’s as Ari Project and debuted with the album Gensou Teien under an indies label in January of 1988. In 1992 the group changed their name to what it is today when they signed with the major label Toshiba EMI; their first major effort, “Koi se yo Otome ~Love story of ZIPANG~”, was released in July of 1992.
The band’s music can generally be described as pop, though they have delved into genres like progressive rock, art rock, gothic rock, and others such as new wave and dark wave.
