Rin’ Biography / バイオグラフィー

In first, here is the biography of Rin’ written on wikipédia 🙂

最初に、ここにRin ‘の伝記がウィキペディアに書かれています ^^

 

Rin’(リン)は、日本音楽バンド。日本の伝統楽器、十七絃琵琶三絃尺八で音楽活動を行なっていた、女性邦楽器演奏家3名によるバンド。

2003年4月7日東京芸術大学の同窓生、Mana(吉永真奈)・Tomoca(長須与佳)・Chie(新井智恵)の3人によりRin’結成。

バンド名の由来は「凛(りん)とする」という意味のほか、英語の「Ring(輪)」と和楽の「」をかけて、音楽を通じて「輪」を作っていきたい…という理由から。

2004年avexから 「Sakitama〜幸魂〜」でデビュー、日本の伝統楽器の音色にJ-POPのメロディーを取り入れ、新たな伝統音楽を創造している。音楽の国際見本市であるMIDEM2006(於カンヌ)に、KOKIARie fuとともに出演した。

2006年にドーモレコードからInland Seaで全米デビューを果たす。

2009年2月13日、解散によりrin’としてのグループの活動終了を公式ページで発表した。

2019年3月8日午後9時、各メンバーのオフィシャルサイト及びSNSで、【和楽器ユニットRin’】としての再結成が公式に発表された[1][2][3][4][5]



 

Rin’ is a Japanese pop group which combines traditional Japanese musical instruments and style with elements of modern pop and rock music. It is a female trio of Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music alumni who graduated in 2003. The band made their performing debut in December 2003, at Meguro Gajoen, and in April 2004, their first single, called Sakitama, was released by avex trax.

Chie Arai and Mana Yoshinaga play koto, sangen, and jushichi-gen, while Tomoca Nagasu plays biwa and shakuhachi. All three perform vocals.

According to the band’s website, the name Rin’ comes from the English word ‘ring’, the Japanese word Wa (和, meaning both ‘ring’ and ‘Japanese-style’), and from the trio’s hope to create a ‘ring’, or circle, of music.

Since their debut, the band has performed in many venues around the world, and have released four singles and several albums. A number of their songs have been used as themes for anime and movies, most notable is Fuhen used in the Samurai 7 anime.

Their chief international album, Inland Sea, was released worldwide: in Europe and the United States on April 25, 2006 and in Japan on August 30, 2006,[1][2] featuring guest performances by Leigh Nash [3] and Lisa Loeb.[3]

According to the band’s website, as of 13 February 2009, Rin’ had put an end to their activities and decided to disband[4] · [5].

After 10 years, on March 8 2019, was officially announced on the official websites of each member the reunification of the Japanese Rin ‘Musical Instruments Unit.[6][7][8][9][10]
