Momotama is comprised of guitarist Tama and vocalist/ keyboardist Momo. This project came to fruition because of the passion for anime songs that these two otakus from Japan have.
Guitarist Tama was seventeen years old when he first started playing the guitar. His heart was captured by the beauty of Bossa Nova when he first heard Evangelion’s version of “Fly Me To The Moon.” Since then he has performed in various sessions as a “Bossanovista” as well as participated in other sessions involving Samba and West African music.
Vocalist Momo (aka cosplayer Mikarin) hasn’t stopped singing since she was four years old and singing children’s songs to her bed-ridden grandmother. In fact her main reason for coming to the USA was to study vocalization techniques. Eventually her heart turned back to her country and she realized the beauty and joy that exists in Anime songs as well as cosplay.
