The unique Japanese female trio Rin'-Mana, Tomoca, and Chie- was born shortly after the three girls graduated from Tokyo's esteemed National University of Fine Arts and Music. Influenced by a wide variety of music and artists from the West & East, Rin' has a cross cultural sound that balances the subtlety of Japanese tradition with contemporary western styles. Timeless Japanese instruments such as the stringed koto and jushichigen; wind instruments biwa, sangen and shakuhachi mix with modern western instrumentation delivering a contemporary sound. Rin' blossoms vocally and creates an upbeat mood.
Rin' sparkles while experimenting with jazz, pop, trance and reggae. The trio has worked with singer/songwriter LISA LOEB and LEIGH NASH (Six Pence None the Richer) who are both featured on their first DOMO Records release.
