Japanese Music to the World!
Yuzu Natsumi (shamisen singer YUZU), a singer / songwriter who travels the world with her instrument shamisen, Japanese traditional guitar, is releasing her first song after moving to New York in 2022.

This song was created as the theme song for her 2024 tour in U.S. and Europe.
She started working on this song with the aim of creating a song that has a universal meaning and can unite everyone in the live venue together. She chose Japanese word KAWAII as the concept, for it is known as a word that symbolizes Japanese pop culture, and she thought there was no one who didn't like this word.

The first version of this song was premiered at Japan Village Summer Festival in New York in August 2023. After a few performances in US and Europe, she recorded the final version in Tokyo, Japan in March 2024.

With arrangement by Akira Sakai, a highly acclaimed game music composer and a keyboardist, this song became a wonderful fusion of Japanese traditional instruments, anime music, and American funk music which Yuzu learned in New York.

At the time this song comes out (May 2024), she is going on her music tour in Europe. She is going to join some Japanese festivals and anime conventions in France, Switzerland, Portugal, Serbia and Egypt.
