About the album:

On her debut album, Minami shows her passion for the Latin jazz. With her clear and expressive voice, she performs eleven standards and cover songs, as well as an original in her distinctive and unique style. With top musicians of international cast she presents an album with innumerous wonderful musical moments, which literally enchants the audience.

With the release of her debut album AGUAS DEL MUNDO in February 2016 a long- cherished dream came true for Minami. The CD was recorded at Greeve Studio in Berlin with international top musicians, Tino Derado (piano), Martin Lillich (bass), Diego Pinera (drums), Felix Astor (guitar, vocals), Robby Geerken (congas), YUMA (violin) and Takashi Kinjo (guitar).

Minami is strongly committed to animal welfare. Her own composition “Seed of Mercy” is dedicated to all life in the world. In the spirit of this song, she will be donating 30% from the sale of each album to the animal welfare Organization “Eva” in Tokyo.

Minami’s Debut Album

In the winter of 2014, I ran an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to raise money for my debut album. The campaign was a great success and now I’m busy focusing on the upcoming album, working with the best musicians and sound engineers in Berlin.

The album will be released in the summer. I’m looking forward to seeing all my fans at the official album release party!
