The musical training of Colombian-born Japanese artist and singer Nobara Hayakawa started in early childhood, with the piano. Once she reached adolescence, she abandoned the classics to embrace the new wave, and years later, attended a jazz school for vocal training. But it was not until she arrived in Tokyo in the year 2000 that she started some serious song writing and participated in various pop and experimental projects.
Music has always been part of her life, but just recently it's started to become a project, not in terms of a sudden revelation, but more like the slow riddance of antique terrors, the arrival of a moment for letting go. Under the noise of memories and daily silence — a voice that sings and celebrates the journey.
Nobara Hayakawa studied graphic design at Universidad Nacional de Colombia,
and earned her Master's degree in visual arts from Tokyo University of the Arts (Tokyo Geijutsu
Daigaku). She currently teaches at the arts and design faculties of two private universities in Bogotá,
Colombia, while working on projects involving sound and singing.
