The Charan-Po-Rantan music group consists of two sisters performing Japanese pop in ultra avant-garde performances featuring bright costumes, stuffed animals and accordions to add elements of whimsy to the group's aesthetic. The sound matches the group's unconventional aesthetic with a mixture of influences that heavily contrast one another.

The band opts for a circus meets cabaret aesthetic complete with Victorian gowns, sky-high fascinators topped with foliage and birds and array of candy. The lead singer even carries around and performs holding a large stuffed pink pig for added effect. The playful look of the a group matches the folksy yet poppy sound of the music they create. Charan-Po-Rantan often performs shows and features music videos on YouTube that show off the band's Japanese artistry and unique personality of the two sisters.
