Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Babes of Burlesque: 46

MISS CABARETTA

When we think of Japan, we think of sushi and sumo wrestlers. But Miss Cabaretta — real name Deka Tamagi — has also made burlesque part of the social fabric in Japan. Known for her exotic costumes and showy, high-stepping dances, she’s a fan of vintage burlesque. To quote the Taipei Times, “The voluptuous beauty’s act takes cues from burlesque performers of the 1950s and 1960s. Swaying and swirling gracefully across the stage, she caresses herself and her wavy black hair before slowly taking off pieces of her tasseled and bejeweled costumes.”

Here she’s ready to blast off in a military-themed dance at the Amaranth Lounge in Tokyo.

She cites eclectic musical influences, from contemporary rock to classic Cuban jazz. In this performance at Tokyo’s Liquid Loft, she’s undulating to some vintage blues.
