Haco is a Japanese vocalist, lyricist-composer, sound artist, electroacoustic player, producer, engineer, founding member of After Dinner and Hoahio, and pop visionary.
Haco has received recognition internationally as the founder, singer, lyricist and composer of the legendary avant-pop group, After Dinner, one of the first Japanese indie bands to tour abroad and to receive the unanimous praise of music publications such as NME and Melody Maker in the 1980s. Hailed as one of the first female proponents of onkyo, Haco has made field recording environmental sounds from daily life and used them as materials in her composing, programming and mixing.
In 1990, she appeared in the film “Step Across the Border,” a documentary on Fred Frith, which was selected as one of the top 100 films of all time by Cahiers du Cinema. Since 1995, she has expanded her delicate and dreamy world of music based on her transparently feathery voice as a solo artist and recorded in collaborative projects such as Hoahio (Yagi Michiyo, Era Mari, Sachiko M), Ash in the Rainbow (Sakamoto Hiromichi), and Yesterday’s Heroes (Terre Thaemlitz). She has also released albums on labels such as ReR Megacorp (UK) ,Tzadik (US), and Someone Good/Room 40 (AUS) among many others.
In 2005, Haco’s sound-art CD “Stereo Bugscope 00” was awarded a prize in the digital music category at Prix Ars Electronica in Austria. Since then, she has been invited to give lectures, workshops, and sound performances at art schools and conferences in many countries.
In 2017, she released her seventh album “Qoosui” on the Australian label, Room 40-subsidiary Someone Good, which includes work with Stabilo (Speaker Gain Teardrop) and Gallery Six, masters of the Hiroshima ambient scene, and Tarnovski (Gurun Gurun), a key figure in Czech experimental-electro music.
“Qoosui” has won critical acclaim from music and art magazines and has been played on numerous radio programs in Europe, North and South America, Oceania, and Japan.
Haco is renowned for her charming melodies, and the power of her music and performances, which are both highly skilled and completely natural. Her work transcends conventional genres and national borders, and continues to attract new fans of all ages.

Emiko OTA (Japon) & KiriSute Gomen (France)
A journey, an initiation, or a tribute to classical Japanese music and its confrontation to its cosmic zen concept. Using the distinction of various flutes in three categories from the origins of gagaku (sho, ryuuteki & hichiriki, respectively representing the sky, the dragon, and the earth), Emiko Ota’s performance brings together elements of a classical repertoire (gagaku syo-gq, nagauta) a traditional (hauta, minyo, do-yo) and a modern (enka, kayokyoku), meaning from the 8th century until now, with the spirit and sensibility right to the world of Japanese experimental music.
Emiko Ota begins her musical studies in Japan, at the age of 5, with the piano and classical singing by a professor from Osaka University of music. She continued after her arrival in France in 1995 in the classical percussions class at national music academy in pantin city.
