Yama Warashi was formed by Bristol-based Japanese artist Yoshino Shigihara.

Yama Warashi (山童) means a small child-like spirit which lives in the mountains.

Her music has a dreamy evocative sound with a shadow of moon cake, inspired by Japanese folk dance music, Bon Odori (盆踊り), free jazz and African music with a slice of electric psychedelia. She sings in her mother tongue as well as in English. Songs are about mycelium, nuclear power stations and the tangled relationships of humans, nature and moon phases.

Her debut album MOON EGG will be released on November 11th. PRE ORDERS are now up.
