YAIMA is a Cascadian Folktronic Music Duo based in Seattle WA. 2014-present
Creating a deeply captivating and finely tuned container for their audiences- YAIMA (Mas Higasa and Pepper Proud) allow the listener the opportunity to Journey through Sonic Soundscapes traversing sensually stimulating and heart centered compositions deeply inspiring each listener to return to their truth. Their music is reminiscent of well known music groups such as Purity Ring, Massive Attack, Bjork, Portishead, Wildlight, Emancipator and Lulacruza.
YAIMA’s music is interwoven with intention and acknowledgment for the elementals. As the earth transmutes through fire, the winds move the water, the water falls and replenishes the earth- the cycles of gratitude and reciprocity is what weaves these harmonies and deeply pulsing rhythms into a unique and balanced sensational journey.
The name YAIMA emerges from two sources one from the Mapudungun language meaning “that which water runs through”
and the other from the gorgeous Island District of Okinawa Japan-
Over the last 5 years YAIMAs music has been reaching the ears and hearts of listeners from all around the world.
