Yae has been one of my favourite musicians since I discovered her from the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles soundtrack where she performed the theme songs to the game. Her folk music always has a serenity and quiet power to it and she effortlessly moves from Japanese to Spanish to English and French depending on the tracks. It has always been quite difficult to buy her music outside of Japan, so being a UK fan has been tricky but I stumbled across this beautifully recorded concert from 2021. It’s a delightful introduction to a hidden gem of acoustic folk music that always carries a message to look after our planet and each other.
Enjoy Yae Concert 2021 in Fukuoka below in support of her 2020 album ‘On The Border‘. For more information on Yae, visit her website.
