Nikaido Kazumi, Hiroshima


WMDF’s first performer who is also a Buddhist priestess (!) Recently, this multi-talented performer has become well-known for writing and performing the hit “Inochi-no-Kioku” (Memory of Life), which was used as the theme song in Studio Ghibli’s Academy Award nominated animation “Kaguyahime-no-Monogatari” (The Tale of Princess Kaguya). But what WMDF really recommends are her live performances, where her powerful and soulful voice expands her unique worldview to all ages and outlooks of audiences.
