Nanba Shiho – Kodona no Kaidan

Nanba Shiho is a relatively new artist. She is actually only 17 years old and I love her style of music. Her voice reminds me of Immi. So indie style and cute!

More information about the song: Kodona” is a combination of the Japanese words kodomo (child) and otona (adult). Composer Yamaguchi said of Nanba, “Though she isn’t simple-minded, she has a strong sense of childlike purity about her, but I also thought her to be someone with the frank and honest eyes of an adult. I was left very interested in the kind of adult she’ll grow up to be.” On his approach to the song’s composition, he spoke of his desire to create something that didn’t fall in line with the trends of today, but even so, could only be sung in the present. Similarly, Koide — who described Nanba as “unlike anything in the music scene these days” — chose to explore the moment in time between childhood and adulthood in the song’s lyrics.

To ensure that Nanba reaches fresh ears far and wide, not one, but two tie-in campaigns for the single have been secured! For many years, Pocky and music channel SPACE SHOWER TV have worked to put the spotlight on up-and-coming artists in their collaborative CMs, and Nanba can now count herself amongst them. Both the CM and her single’s upcoming PV were supervised by award-winning Perfume art director Seki Kazuaki
