Nami Sato - Arahama


It didn’t take long for me to completely fall head over heels with Nami Sato’s latest single, “Arahama.” It’s a wonderful example of her incredible skills as a producer and composer, she so effortlessly captures past experiences and shares them with audiences across the world in a unique and unforgettable manner.

“These are soundscape of the area that was heavily affected by Great East Japan Earthquake, where the Tsunami washed my whole town away on the 11th March, 2011.

Some people may say that those places are completely gone since the Tsunami. But we know it’s not true. There are beautiful new things born everyday in the place where it has lost everything in the past, and I want you to know it.”

“Arahama” is provides a deep and reflective state for the listener as Sato combines minimalistic ambient notes with samples and textures that give the overall track a new layer and breath of life. Nami’s music is magical, emotive and personal. She blends field recordings with delicate, intricate instrumentation which ebbs and flows from ambient into experimental electronic and contemporary classical. Her previous work has been featured by the likes of Resident Advisor and Dummy, and she was picked as one of the participants for Red Bull Music Academy’s 2018 new musician showcase event in Berlin.
