In 2021, THTFHQ had the pleasure of interviewing KATARI about their passion project, music production, performances, literature, and lo-fi music. Make sure to check this awesome and exclusive interview HERE.
The group recently released their 1st full-length album “KAIKA”.
The group’s 2nd live show “Seiiki-sanctuary-“ is going to be held in April 2022.
KATARI is a “musical literature” duo consisting of voice actor Shinichiro Kamio and composer Takehiro Mamiya (Yuyoyuppe aka DJ’TEKINA//SOMETHING).
Based in Tokyo, Japan, the duo combines Japanese “pure literature” with lo-fi, original music to create a powerful, unique new musical experience.
Kamio takes on the role of the narrative voice of each track—or the voice of the author himself or herself—and brings to life their words and worlds with his deep, clear voice, while Mamiya sets the tone for each narration with original musical creations that take listeners on an unforgettable journey.
KATARI features narrative tracks from famous Japanese literary figures such as Chuya Nakahara, Akiko Yosano, Kenji Miyazawa, and others. Their tracks have gained attention on social media sites as each new offering attracts draws in new fans to KATARI’s musical universe.
