Bio

Hatis Noit is a Japanese vocal performer from distant Shiretoko in Hokkaido who now resides in London. Her accomplished range is astonishingly self-taught, inspired by everything she could find from Gagaku — Japanese classical music — and operatic styles, Bulgarian and Gregorian chanting, to avant-garde and pop vocalists.

It was at the age of 16, during a trek in Nepal to Buddha's birthplace, that she realized singing was her calling. While staying at a women's temple in Lumbini, one morning on a walk, Hatis Noit heard someone singing. On further investigation, it was a female monk singing Buddhist chants alone. The sound moved her so intensely that she was instantly aware of the visceral power of the human voice; a primal and instinctive instrument that connects us to the very essence of humanity, nature and our universe.

The name Hatis Noit itself is taken from Japanese folklore, meaning the stem of the lotus flower. The lotus represents the living world, while its root represents the spirit world. Therefore, Hatis Noit is what connects the two. For Hatis Noit, music represents the same netherworld with its ability to move and transport us to the other side; the past, a memory, our subconscious.
