UA performs with new band


Alaya Vijana, a new band featuring UA, tabla player U-Zhaan (of Asa-Chang & Junray) and sitar player Yoshida Daikiti, releases its self-titled debut album on Feb. 4. The band combines ethnic elements with electronica, with UA singing freely throughout. The album’s jacket also features Tezuka Osamu’s painting “Hi no Tori”.

UA will also be featured on a soundtrack for NHK’s children’s show Do Re Mi, and she will also release a new single, “Lightning”, in February.
