“Changing the perspective towards nationality, love, freedom of thought and taste is among the most important themes for us in recent years.
“Himawari” is a song meant for all music lovers around the world. As a composition by two artists from three different racial backgrounds – India, The Netherlands and Japan – we hope that it will inspire a more positive attitude towards diversity.”Komachi & Basmati
With their new track, “Himawari” (“sunflower” in Japanese) Natasha and Komachi aim to employ the peaceful character of lofi music in order to convey a deeply positive message of unity. The artists with Dutch-Indian and Japanese roots chose the sunflower (Himawari) as a symbol of hope and a messenger of peace. Pointing oneself in the direction of light is a choice one can make, the same goes for the decision to appreciate cultural/ethical differences – it’s all related to thinking and acting from a place of love, instead of a place of hatred.
The track combines influences from the lofi and electronic aesthetics, offering an incredibly peaceful sonic scape. Demonstrating the producers’ ability to achieve a balance between their music worlds, it is a delicate but impactful collision of touching ukulele motives, elevating pads, and soft yet driving percussion.
Blissful and uplifting “Himawari” is the Spring-welcoming tune, which will instill a feeling of contentment and optimism within any listener.
Basmati – the new moniker of singer, songwriter, producer, and instrumentalist Natasha Ghosh, is meant to pay homage to her Indian roots while continuing her exploration in the realms of instrumental music.
