Event Details

Songwriter and singer, performer and novelist of Japanese mythology and folklore, EkotumI has developed the ‘Kojiki new translation series’ – a Japanese-style contemporary opera with a personal interpretation of Japanese mythology through song and dance. Since 2015, she has performed concerts across the world. She also writes Japanese mythology long novels aside her singer career.

Ekotumi will release her new single ‘A Wingless Country’, a song from her new art project, ‘Covid’19-’20’. This is a creation to record the memory of life under Covid-19 by using soundscapes with music recorded during the world lockdowns, March – May 2020.

‘A Wingless Country’ is composed from soundscapes of Japan, comprising 205 sounds from 88 areas, positioned in the stereo field to give the impression of reality. The lyric motif is that recently, people have forgotten Kojiki, the first written book – over 1,000 years old – about Japanese mythology. Recorded in numerous places across Japan, from Hokkaido – the snowy northernmost island – to sub-tropical Okinawa in the far south. Listen carefully to the wave sounds in the last part and Imagine Japan!

Ekotumi previously performed at Hyper Japan in 2016, but this London date marks her first solo concert in the UK.
