The YAIMA Music Project
Featuring Multi-Instrumentalist & Producer Masaru Higasa and Vocalist Pepper Proud
has often been described as timeless and unmistakable,
offering a balanced synergy of both the masculine and feminine expression.
Their melodious soundscapes showcase instruments from all over the world.
Inspired by the Majesty of Nature
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 passage
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 culturally preserved Yaeyama District of Okinawa Japan-
Over the last 5 years YAIMAs music has been reaching the ears and hearts
of listeners from all around the world.
