About Sayuri

Sayuri, who also goes by “Sanketsu-girl” Sayuri, is a J-pop singer-songwriter whose music has been featured as themes for several anime TV series and films.

∙ As a teenager, Sayuri dropped out of high school to form the acoustic duo LONGTAL, who busked on street corners and played in coffee shops.
∙ At age 16, she was awarded the Grand Prix at 2012’s Yamaha Music Revolution—Japan’s largest music competition—which prompted her to explore a solo career.
