Yaima, Seattle

The sensational vibrations that emanate from YAIMA materialize from an unconventional spectrum of history. Masaru Higasa was born on the mystical island of Okinawa, Japan where he was first inspired to play the music of his ancestors. He brings a resonating history through multicultural traditional instruments and offers a backbone of enticing beats that get the body moving. Pepper Proud was raised in a small community in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, where her roots grew deep in traditional folk music. Jeff Kimes calls to our auditory sense with deeply vibrational sounds of the didgeridoo, seamless biological beats and percussion. Together, they combine genres like indie-folk-tronic, psy-ambient, dub-pop and weave a smooth groove of soothing melodies, intricate instrumentation and beats to get the body blooming.



Yaima released it's first album "Pellucidity" in 2014 through The Polish Ambassador's Jumpsuit Records -- a record label/artist collective committed to social change through hands-on community action days, educational workshops and gatherings that foster building and nurturing regenerative and sustainable communities. The summer of 2015 found them playing well-received sets at West Coast festivals, including Cascadia, Beloved, Enchanted Forest and Imagine.

Subaqueous, PDX

Isaac Cotec, aka Subaqueous, started making electronic based music in the summer of 2005 working with a project called Psyche Sonics. Psyche Sonics was an experimental group working with binaural beats and altering consciousness through sounds. The Project traveled in a large yurt that moved around the PNW on tour as a musical art installation. It was featured in such festivals as Beloved, Emerg+n+see, Oracle Gatherings, and others. After touring with his experimental and ambient based project Isaac Cotec continued to make music and grow as a musician. As of March 12th 2011 the unique character and sound of Subaqueous was born.

Mr. Moo, PDX

Mr. Moo hails from the forested hills Portland, OR, surrounded by nature, music and many months of rainy, overcast days. His music is a particular electro-acoustic blend of violin, sound design and heavy beats. A Mr. Moo performance pulls heavily on sounds from all over the world, samples of music from different cultures and time periods, all glued together to take you into another world.

Pepper Proud, SEA

Pepper Proud was raised in the small Appalachian valley town of Lewisburg, West Virginia where her love of music and storytelling began. Influenced in part by her Appalachian culture, she picked up the guitar and mandolin and began to write and play her own style of Folk & Americana music. In 200,7 she moved out West and settled in Seattle where she found her niche participating in the "Round" sessions; multimedia performances at the Fremont Abbey that brought together a lot of artists in the Folk/Indie scene.



That same year she began playing with the local Seattle band Citta Flow and met Masaru Higasa and Jeff Kimes- after a few performances together they teamed up with visual artist Kaizen and performance artist Kirra Lien and formed The Yaima Music Project. Alongside the release of Yaima's "Pellucidity" in 2014, Proud released her second solo album "The Water Chapter.” Her message is simple: It's time to share the love, love, love.
