WHAT IS OMOIYARI?
A Japanese word that means to have sympathy and compassion towards another person.
On Omoiyari, Kishi Bashi embarks on a personal quest by creating his music in locations relevant to the Japanese American Incarceration during WWII.
It is on this journey in which Kishi Bashi comes to terms with his own identity, and uncovers a myriad of social issues that have gripping modern relevance.
Channeling the hard-learned lessons of history, Omoiyari is an uncompromising musical statement on the turbulent sociopolitical atmosphere of present-day America.
