Lose yourself in the aura of an extraordinary voice. Japanese vocal performer Hatis Noit is a genuine musical traveller. Born in Hokkaido, a pilgrimage to Buddha’s birthplace in Nepal at the age of 16 made her realise her destiny was to sing.

Now relocated to London, Hatis Noit is inspired by a wide range of musical influences, from classical Japanese gagaku music, black metal and post-industrial rock, to opera, Bulgarian chanting, and avantgarde vocalists like Holly Herndon and Meredith Monk.

At Ultima, Hatis Noit will perform new material she has been working on since the release of Aura in 2022, as she continues to explore her identity as a Japanese person relocated to Europe with upbeat mood and endless energy.

PS: Catch Hatis Noit in conversation with Rob Young, Benedicte Maurseth and Eivind Buene in Neofolklore - Tradition and innovation at Sentralen Friday 15 September.




Magical aura

I had read that Hatis Noit’s name is taken from Japanese folklore, meaning the stem of a lotus flower. The lotus represents the living world, while its root represents the spirit world – the stem is what connects the two. This made sense to me when listening to her sing:her music has the ability to move and transport us to the other side; to the past, a memory, or our subconscious.It is a fusion of ancient and modern, as she builds up rich vocal textures by sampling, resampling and layering her own voice. Don’t miss this rare chance to hear Hatis Noit’s rapturous music up close and personal.

‘I loved Hatis Noit’s last couple of albums, but I was blown away by her solo concert. From the moment Hatis stepped on stage, there was an undeniable energy that filled the room. The way she effortlessly commanded the crowd with their incredible musical talent was nothing short of mesmerizing. Her unique blend of haunting melodies, intricate rhythms and captivating vocals transported me to another world.’
