Tavito Nanao is a singer-songwriter that represents the new flow of music in Japan. He has led the Japanese music scene since his debut with many controversial works including the 3-disc “911FANTASIA,” in which he depicted the world since Apollo 11’s landing on the moon to 2051, many years after the Iraq War. He also continues to surprise audiences with his one and only live performances.
Overground, he is known as a gifted melody-maker, while underground, he organizes one of the largest improvisation events in Japan. The Hyakunin-kumite (“karate kata with 100 people”) event, in which Nanao goes one-on-one in improvisation with all performers of the night, is a very popular event that attracts audiences by the thousand each time.
In 2013 he started a band called “VOICE! VOICE! VOICE! VOICE! VOICE! VOICE! VOICE!”, in which he pursues new music by using only voices. Kyo Sakurai, Japan’s no.1 human beatbox, CANTUS, a unique choir, and animals (a dog, bird, pig, etc.) are its current members. The band stunned audiences in Tokyo with an intriguing performance that seemed to be a mix of a Broadway musical plot and extreme music, in which they depicted the world from the dawn of the earth, the birth of music and up to today.
He continues to take on new challenges in music distribution systems also. Using an independent music distribution web service called DIY STARS, of which he was involved in the development, he has been running DIY HEARTS, a fund raising project for the victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake, since March 17, 2011.
