Currently based in Tokyo, Hatis Noit draws on her experience with ballet, theater arts, traditional folk music, koto, gagaku (the court music of ancient Japan) and acting. She is also the vocalist of the band Mutyumu (Virgin Babylon Records hosted by world’s end girlfriend), which has received both domestic and international praise. At her solo project, Hatis Noit uniquely interprets classical music, whisper, ethnic music, poetry reading within her singing, and has established a solemn and formidable world music that consists of only her voice.

[Lulla LayLa] Lulla is a Japanese Singer/Song Writer and Composer originally based in Tokyo, Japan.
Lulla’s music has Japanese traditional elements combined with a psychedelic folk sensibility. Her music delivers haunting piano ballads spanning subjects from love life and everything in between.
On several occasions audience members from different parts of the world have said to Lulla, ” Your music makes me nostalgic because your music seems like my country’s music.”, even though she was not familiar with their country songs. She feels maybe her blood remembers other lives and this sentiment comes through in her compositions. She loves the idea of people coming together through folk sensibility and music.
The line up of Lulla’s current solo project is, vocals and piano / Lulla Miyuki, bass / Mike Gallina , guitar / Michael Biskup, percussion / Steve Honoshowsky and Ud / Alejandro Castellano.
