The Yaima Music Project is a Cascadian Folktronic Music Duo based in Seattle WA (2014-Present)
YAIMA Music Project featuring Multi-Instrumentalist Producer Masaru Higasa andVocalist Pepper Proud has often been described as timeless and unmistakable, a balanced synergy of both the masculine and feminineexpression. Their melodious soundscapes showcase instruments from all over the world. Inspired by the majesty ofNature their musings encompass the listener with driving and revitalizing organic rhythms, transcendent electronic production, warm soothing female vocals and heartened lyricism. Their intention is to create a bridge between Nature and Humankind,an expansive experience that encourages growth and graceful passages for the hearts and minds of their listeners.
The name YAIMA emerges from two sources one from the Mapudungun language meaning "that which water runs through”and the other from the gorgeous Island District ofOkinawa Japan-Over the last 5 years YAIMAs music has been reaching the ears and hearts of listeners from all around the world.ReleasesEach album has been created with intention and acknowledgment for the elementals part of an Overarching Story To reflect and illustrate Nature.
The Earth is replenished through Water
Yaima’s first album “Pellucidity” is a beauteous and bewitching collection of stories that lead the listener on a journey through enticing soundscapes and floating melodies.Pellucidity means- to allow the maximum passage of light, to see clearly, as clear as fresh water in a mountain lake. Pellucidity was created for the water and for the peaceful being inside of us all.
The Water gives life to the Wind
OvO means “seed” or “egg” and stands for the point in time or space at which something starts- the next evolution. OvO was created as a concept album and carries the listener through the life cycle of a seed- the story begins in Winter, proceeds into theSpring & Summer, recedes in the fall and completes its cycle in WinterThe owl appears on the cover art as well as in the title “OvO” and represents the elemental energy of theWind.
The Wind fuels the Fire
Yaima’s third album “Antidote” was crafted as a pulsing and fluctuating expanse of soundscapes intertwined with the delicacies of human emotion. From start to finish this album is a portrayal of the element of fire, the dance of passion and renewal, the deep inner work of intention and the cultivated patience of devotion. Born of an ancient tune,layered in time – “Antidote” was written as a way to rekindle the spark of inspiration and new growth, the idea of transmutation and the power of transformation. These stories have come to life through the lessons and reflections written in the turning flames,wildfires, volcanic activity, the rising smoke, and by the warmth of the Earth’s Heart. The Dragonfly is generally associated with Transformation,Change and Adaptability, Joy,and Lightness of Being. It is a powerful symbol of the realm of emotions, an invitation to dive deeper into what is felt, and a reminder to reconnect with Nature.
And the Fire transmutes the Earth
Life begins with a promise, constant motion. Every moment of life, A chemical reaction, A dance of opposites, An endless orbit around and within the light. This story begins in the spark of Atom. The universe, Made of Basic Elements, Matter, Frequency, Life, Light All in Constant Motion. The Rhythm. The Dance the Breath that Exists
in All Living Beings. This Universal memory, Access to the Wellspring, of Stored Information, The inherent truth,
That we are all just part, Of something much grander, Of something much older, Of the whole. Trusting Intuition,
Through the Changes, However Subtle, Trusting the Knowing, As the Truth Ripples Through the Ages,
Unwinding the Code, Awakening Here, in this Moment, The beckoning call Of our Wild Rebirth.
Piece by Piece comes Together, and Arrives. The beginning of life on Earth, For both the Flora & the Fauna
Each born of a mother, from the first Breath, Begins the unfolding. We are handed The Reigns of the Ages,
And Each Voice is Needed. As we step Into What comes Next, The Innovation and Realization That we are
Connected. It all Begins. The Heartbeat of this Earth. The Blossoming of that which was Seeded.
Citadella was written as a universal call for peace,love and hope. Inspired by theCitadella Monument in Budapest Hungary. The Citadel Sits high on a hill, overlooking the cities below as a guardian- calling out for peace and as a reminder for all those who gave their lives for freedom, independence and the prosperity of Hungary. The Frequency of true love is as hopeful as The Spring.Yet love can be bittersweet as the complexities of being human obscure this simple truth.When we are able to findHarmony, it amplifies and strengthens the frequency of love- sending the vibration out to the earth to break down conceptual walls, allowing all to see with the eyes of compassion and unity. The complete heart begins with a simple wish… to love.
