It contains musical instrument performances and soundscapes that were actually recorded locally in India and Pakistan, and songstress YUIMA ENYA
However, it is a video work on a grand scale that incorporates songs and poems to express the feelings and thoughts of humans trying to be better, their desperation and struggle, and their chaotic but trying to connect.

*About the music video for “Kwarai”*

What you should see in this video is the free and strange state of the many monsters that appear. Each person is funny and beautiful, and you’ll definitely love them. They are all cheerful and cute friends, but you can see their different lifestyles. Also, in recreating Hyakki Yagyo in this modern day, the reason why we were able to create such a nostalgic yet chaotic finish was because we borrowed many of Besma’s historical costumes. I would also like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who was involved. look!

*About “dwarf size”*

The first song of J.A.K.A.M.’s new album FRAGMENTS released last year JUSTICE Waidai features the voice and poetry of YUIMA ENYA, a popular singer who was born and raised in Sangenjaya, Tokyo and studied jazz and avant-garde music in New York.
Reborn as!
Instruments and soundscapes recorded locally in India and Pakistan expand the imagination of Asia, from its jungles to its deserts, evoking listeners to a remote paradise and reminding them that Japan is also part of Asia.
Future century Asia imagined in 2038! Enjoy it!

(CROSSPOINT)

The word “Waidai” was created by me when I was writing the lyrics for this song.

When Mr. Moochie spoke to me, he talked about justice. I was sent two movies and when I watched them I was very confused. It depicts a tragic world, a hopeless reality, and makes you wonder if there is any justice at all. After that, even though I thought about justice in my own way, I just couldn’t like the words and concepts, so when I told Moochie-san about it, he told me that it wasn’t just about justice itself, but about people helping each other and the subtleties of their hearts.

I thought it was referring to something like the empowerment that exists in people’s activities, which precedes the weighty word “justice.” Also, in one of the films, a documentary by Tetsu Nakamura, the way he looks at the vast land is very impressive, and the miniature landscape for me overlaps with the landscape that he saw.

I wanted to express the feelings and thoughts of trying to be a better human being, the desperation and struggle, and the attitude of trying to connect even though it is chaotic.

The word dwarf means small or low. There are moments when even small beings come together and become a great force. The word “dwarf” embodies such a wish and admiration for humans.
