Hymn for Woods
This album is a collection of folk songs and hymns from an imaginary place called Featherland. Featherland is the first recordings made by two improvisers working primarily in Tokyo.

Ayami Suzuki is a vocalist with roots in Celtic music and ambient music. She also works as a songwriter.
