KAMOSU means fermentate in Japanese. A band which aims to generate (kamosu) in this world. Founded in 2016 by three Kamoshika [generators] who generate the sounds. The three people in the band are: Hiroshi Obiki who creates overtones via Khoomei, mouth harps etc., Kazato Kina who plays tabla, and Kazuya Zenzai who is a singer and also plays guitar. They produce unique sounds with their original but nostalgic melodies and the harmonious twin vocals.
