About The Kinjaz

Asian-American masked dance troupe The Kinjaz “innovate, entertain, and positively impact the world through movement, media, and mentally.” Drawing upon Naruto anime and martial arts influences, the CA-based group perfectly blends synched hip-hop moves with Asian cultural traditions, gathering 80M+ YouTube video views and a 1M+ combined followers on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Their 770K+ YouTube subscribers enjoy full length dances, in addition to their “podKast” featuring guests from all walks of life, including musicians, entrepreneurs, dancers, restaurateurs and more. From “Kinjaz Kronickles” to sensually charged performances challenging stigmas that Asian men aren’t sexy, the brotherhood beckons fans “respect all, fear none,” and join the #ARMYofKIN.
