Adding to the Japanese contingent at Larmer this year, Yama Warashi is Bristol-based Japanese artist Yoshino Shigihara’s solo project. Her music has a dreamy evocative sound with a shadow of moon cake, inspired by Japanese folk dance music, Bon Odori, free jazz and African music with a slice of electric psychedelia. The former Zun Zun Egui vocalist and keyboard player promises artfully composed electro-acoustic music with a grown-up face.

Yama Warashi means a small child-like spirit which lives in the mountains. Accompanied by saxophone, guitar and bass, Yoshino plays keyboard, percussions and sings songs in her mother tongue about mycelium, nuclear power and broken O. Her influences are mushrooms, nature and waterfalls.
