Channeling a lifelong love of the ocean into his music, HIRAIDAI is a folk singer-songwriter whose ukulele-powered songs have made him one of Japan’s most unique pop stars. ∙ Inspired by his father—a surfer and guitarist—and the ukelele his grandmother gave him at age three, HIRAIDAI began playing music as a child and released his debut, My Style, in 2008. ∙ His big break came in 2011, when his song “One Love - Pacific Harmony” was selected as the official theme of that year’s Honolulu Festival, one of Hawaii’s biggest annual events. ∙ Aloha, from 2012, reached No. 19 on the Japanese charts, and he’s since landed four additional studio albums in the Top 20. ∙ In 2019, his song “The Gift” was used as the theme for the anime film Doraemon: Nobita’s Chronicle of the Moon Exploration.
