List of Bemani musicians

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from List of Bemani artists)

In the Bemani series of rhythm video games by Konami, it appears that seemingly hundreds of different musicians and groups perform the songs. However, in reality there exists only a core group of a few dozen Konami artists, performing under pseudonyms and forming new groups.

All names are in Western order (family name last).

This list does not include artists whose songs have been licensed by Konami, primarily through the Dancemania division of Toshiba-EMI.
