ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Masao Tachiya grew up in Fukushima, Japan, which was devastated by the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster in 2011. Many of his older poems reflect on good old times in beautiful hometown and ocean in Fukushima. After the disaster, he was deeply saddened by the destruction of his homeland and sufferings of his people. Tachiya's words inspired Yamamoto to create music that transcends cultural and language barriers. These songs will make you smile, dance, and cry. Yamamoto's sensitive touch on the piano and expressive singing are healing. Yamamoto's personal experience as a volunteer in Fukushima undoubtedly influenced her heart-felt performance on this album. Yamamoto will donate CDs and proceeds to support the people who were affected by the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster. The Regional Artist Project Grant is funded and administered by the United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County. This project is supported by the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources. The program is operated in partnership with the Franklin County Arts Council, Johnston County Arts Council, Vance County Arts Council and Warren County Arts Council.

Haunting and Touching Music About Profound Memories
This is a wonderful collection of moving, original songs and beautiful piano improvisations which transport me to a distant world. Yamamoto's clearly-shaped melodies, tasteful accompaniments, musical piano playing, and pure quality of her singing voice are impressive. I especially love the songs which start with her voice alone; it has enough magnetism to hold me without anything else. And when she adds the chime to her voice in “Lark, Don’t Cry,” the sound becomes magical. This CD is quite an accomplishment, a fitting tribute to those who will benefit from it.
