COMA-CHI is an iconic figure, recognized and admired for her exceptional talents and distinctive musical style. She began her music career as a vocalist in a band during her university years, discovering hip-hop at the age of 15. In 2005, her career took a decisive turn when she became the first female finalist of the B-BOY Park MC Battle, the most prestigious rap contest in the country, propelling her to national fame. Her debut album, “Day Before Blue“, released in 2006, significantly impacted the Japanese hip-hop scene, with tracks like “Michibata,” now considered classics of the genre.

COMA-CHI quickly captured attention, collaborating with renowned artists such as M-Flo, Miura Daichi, Kato Miliyah, and Zeebra. Her song “B-girl-ism” established itself as a genre classic. In 2009, she emerged as a promising artist on iTunes, with her second album, “RED NAKED“, dominating the download charts. Despite composing for films and commercials, she terminated her contract two years later, dissatisfied with commercial production and the constraints imposed by the industry.

In 2011, she founded her label, Queen’s Room, to break free from gender stereotypes and market pressures, seeking more authentic expression. In 2013, she was nominated for a Grammy Award for her collaboration on the album “REGGAE CONNECTION” by Sly & Robbie, marking her presence at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. Continuing to be active in music, she returned in 2018 with “JOMON GREEN,” an album produced in collaboration with renowned American producers like Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg. In 2020, she launched “Japanoia“, in collaboration with Umaya Hiroto, and she was enthusiastically welcomed by her international fans.


Born in 1997 in Chigasaki, Japan, Namichie is a Japanese artist with multiple talents, excelling in music, mascot costume design, and essay writing. Valedictorian at Tokyo University of the Arts, she currently resides in her hometown of Chigasaki. As a musician, Namichie has distinguished herself as a solo singer-songwriter and a member of the band TAMURAKING. Her debut album, “Everyday Away,” released in 2020, achieved notable success, winning a special award at the “APPLE VINEGAR -Music Award-” that same year. Masafumi Goto, a member of the ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION, recognized her talent and became her sponsor. This album was also selected in the “Art” category of Forbes 30 UNDER 30 JAPAN in 2020, showcasing her recognition as a promising young talent from Japan.

Since 2018, Namichie has captured attention through her varied musical collaborations, particularly with ASOBOiSM. Her notable collaboration on “Rich Or Dead (Asian Girls Remix)“, produced by XLII, was incredibly well-received by both Japanese and international audiences. Her talent extends beyond music, with several television appearances that have increased her popularity and broadened her audience. In addition to her musical career, Namichie invests in designing mascot costumes, bringing a creative and playful touch to her artistic universe. She has also proven herself as a writer, composing essays that showcase her literary skills and her desire to express herself through various creative forms.
