We are Holly and Tomo = Santa Dharma. We just arrived back in Japan after a year and a half in Tanzania and Colombia. We like making lo-fi tunes together with our repertoire of retro instruments and effect pedals, and we love to share them with you. We´re down for some collaborations, but stranger is better. Let´s get weird.

Update: 02/23 Just got back to the land of wi-fi after more than a week away doing job interviews, a concert, and other nonsense around Japanlandia. Have some tracks to upload and so many comments to return. Want to listen, want to share light. Please be patient with us. Keep FAWMing <3

    Hey, thanks for listening! I understand otime pressures, i'm just glad you got some tracks out. That's the important thing, and I thoroughly enjoyed them! 😄

    Your comment, "Ironic since her whole battle was being able to speak," was amazing! Thank you!

    Not a problem, I'm enjoying your music again this year. As for those venturing from the formula in Japan, I think that's a sign of a healthy music scene. Those who want to continue to progress art & music are at the forefront of creativity. Those who simply just produce songs based on tried & true methodologies offer very little (if anything at all) to the continued development of music. I'm glad to hear that there are those pushing the envelope in Japan.

    See You In The Shadows…
