“Honor yourself, honor others, honor the planet” is Haikaa´s main focus when it comes to life and her music. From a signed girl group to a phenomenal independent artist, this amazing Japanese Brazilian embraces her diversity.
Haikaa’s musical journey began in Japan when Sony Music discovered her as a teen. She performed and toured in a girl band, and through this experience she heard her musical calling. She also started songwriting and realized the liberation it brought to her. She studied classical music, Japanese folk-singing, bossa nova, and pop. She also started speech therapy to fine-tune her vocal and hearing instruments. This combination of vocal training and speech therapy is the basis for her ability to hear and reproduce sounds in varying languages. All the projects she creates or participates in fit into a concept she calls “ThreeToHappy”, ie, honor yourself, honor others, honor the planet. In March 2013, Haikaa released her single “Turn On The Dark” which establishes a parallel between the importance of introspection for our soul and natural light for the preservation of nocturnal wildlife. To further expand on some of these ideas, Haikaa also published her thought-provoking book “What is Diversity?” where she discusses issues ranging from democracy to ethics, and environment to consumption from the perspective of diversity.
