[MV Premiere] Experimental J-pop/World Music Drifter Aya Safiya Releases New Single '別れ歌 (Wakare-uta)'
Japanese-American singer-songwriter Aya Safiya takes a musical deep dive into rediscovering her heritage with new single '別れ歌 Wakare -Uta'.
Previously performing more in the World music genre - Balkan and Mediterranean music to be exact - the creative has often struggled to reconcile her many interests and diverse heritage. However on this latest track, Safiya shares that she feels she's hit some new ground.
"I perform in so many different genres and projects... I’ve been excited about this task because juggling them all has become overwhelming and disorganized...as I continued to brainstorm how I would best represent my music/brand I started to think bringing in the Japanese element actually might tie everything together since it’s singer-songwriter and pop like my music in English, but “worldly” like the Mediterranean and Balkan music I sing."
