Alternative // Killarney, Kerry // she/ her sí/ í

Amano is a vocalist, poet, songwriter and activist from Killarney, Co. Kerry.

She is working and weaving bilingually in English and Irish between the genres of sean-nós, hip hop and alt. folk.

Amano's influences range from Iarla Ó'Lionáird to Princess Nokia, and Lisa O'Neill to Priya Ragu.

Her work explores identities, animism, land and loving. She draws from the well of a deepening understanding of her Irish and Japanese heritages.

Amano returned to the music scene in 2023 following a seven year hiatus. She has since performed at Dublin Fringe Festival, Hidden Hearth Festival , Bridget 1500 Festival and worked with Irish artists including Liam Ó'Maonlaí, Rónán Ó'Snodaigh, Myles Ó'Reilly, Irish Artists for Palestine, VisionÉire and Rising Tide Productions.

'Thread' an Irish language experimental pop project in collaboration with Kalabanx is set for independent release in May 2024.
