Saco Yasuma is a Japanese-born and NY-based singer-song writer. She sings about humanity as a part of nature and the universe, and our inner peace and freedom. The album “AS IT IS is Beautiful” was released in June 2018, features songs in Japanese and English. Since Saco loves the nuance, sound and vibration of Japanese, which is her native language, she writes and sings in Japanese. Listeners will experience feeling the vibration of the language, while the songs are interpreted in English poetic narratives. Previously, she has released two albums as a saxophonist, and this is her first album as a singer. http://sacoyasuma.comNobuko Tsuruta: nobukoart.com Sakurako Kataoka: sakurako.tv.com notsosupergirl.com Kevin Nathaniel: kevinnathaniel.com One Note One Spirit: onenoteonespirit.com
