Welcome to the eightieth iteration of the Haiku Music Challenge, hosted by Naviar Records.
This beautiful haiku was written by Scott, a long-time supporter of Naviar and one of our <a href=https://naviarrecords.bandcamp.com/community>Bandcamp supporters</a>:
snowflakes gently fall
cold winter’s pale sakura
I envy the birds
Fifteen tracks were inspired by Scott’s haiku, and here’s my selection for The Haiku Foundation:
Track: Sakura snowflake
Artist: Douglas James’s DarkWaterBlue
After a short break, DarkWaterBlue joined the Haiku Challenge last week with a classical, minimal composition.
Track: Pale Sakura
Artist: Kyosuke Osaku
Here’s an ethereal and immersive ambient soundscape created by Toronto based artist Kyosuke Osaku.
Artist: Rosmarino Baia
A simple, mesmerizing piano piece by a new member of our community, Rosmarino Baia.
Thank you for listening. Next week we’ll be listening to music inspired by haiku of Tan Taigi:
in the light of torches –
mountain peaks at night
The deadline to submit your track is 14 April. To find out more and participate, please visit the Naviar Records site.
