This is a triple artist page for the Japanese SAWA, the Japanese group SAWA and the half Japanese / half Cuban Sawa Kobayashi.

1) SAWA (河内沙和 - Sawa Kouchi) is a Japanese born singer that lives in the suburbs, about one hour from Tokyo. Her mother made the pitch-perfect girl pick up the violin at the tender age of four, and by age 10, she took up the piano out of her own will.

SAWA first appeared in 2003 as a member of the group Jack Knife under Stardust Management. The group performed cover routines live and disbanded in April 2004 without releasing any material. Later, influenced by favorite artists such as m-flo, Jazztronik and FreeTEMPO, she began writing and performing music based on club music. At the same time, she proceeded to college to make her childhood dream come true – to become a teacher. She acquired the license for a high school English teacher, and taught at a local high school, although only for three months.

SAWA seized the chance in 2006, when she participated in a club event in Yokohama that she thought was an audition (which wasn’t one). Her transparent yet characteristic, miraculous voice, as well as her fresh and cute presence that has never been seen in other club music singers in the past, she caught the attention of many music creators. During this time SAWA began working with Front Men Entertainment under the name SK-V. Through the partnership this name changed from SK-V to SK5 and finally to KOUCHI.

    I don't believe the info on this page is right. There are 3 different artists's songs named SAWA up here, and it seems like ONE is taking over everything. What a shame...

    She's so amazing (and underrated) I pretty much don't even care what she releases, I'm all over whatever it is. v LOVED FRIDAY NIGHT omg I bump that all the time. Welcome to Sa-World is so good, she actually didn't have to release anything else to be a legend in my book. I just...I love her! tl;dr: I REPS HER AND I BUMPS HER

    ...I can't even muster up the energy to be excited tbh. I've exhausted it all while waiting two years for this day. I'm really happy she's finally releasing something, though.

    New release December 19th. Judging by the price, it might be a mini album?
