YOSHINO SHIGIHARA (YAMA WARASHI): RIVER LEA
Yoshino Shigihara is a Japanese artist based in London. She calls her music project ‘Yama Warashi’ which means Mountain spirit in Japanese. It’s actually the name of a scary witch from the mountain but Yoshino decided it to be a fluffy friendly monster in her mind. She gets inspiration from Moon and mushrooms.
Her new album just came out via PRAH Recordings. Some songs are about veganism, intuition and illusion, also her thoughts and feelings in London.
She currently floats around on the River Lea and wandering in the woods in the mashes.
