Adia Tay is an Indie singer-songwriter who hails from Singapore. Her debut six-track EP “Kintsugi”, which was released in April 2019, is “an ode to brokenness and the renewal of the heart” and it also contains a juicy surprise for Asian Film fans.

As a matter of fact, the second track on the album is called “Kabukicho” and has been composed as a homage to the 2014 Japanese film “Kabukicho Love Hotel” directed by Ryūichi Hiroki and starring celebrities Shota Sometani and Atsuko Maeda. The film is the direct inspiration behind the song “Kabukicho,” and celebrates Japanese life and art.

The music video for “Kabukicho” will be released on 30th May 2019, and here is a sneak preview.

On paper I am an Italian living in London, in reality I was born and bread in a popcorn bucket. I've loved cinema since I was a little child and I’ve always had a passion and interest for Asian (especially Japanese) pop culture, food and traditions, but on the cinema side, my big, first love is Hong Kong Cinema. Then - by a sort of osmosis - I have expanded my love and appreciation to the cinematography of other Asian countries. I like action, heroic bloodshed, wu-xia, Shaw Bros (even if it’s not my specialty), Anime, and also more auteur-ish movies. Anything that is good, really, but I am allergic to rom-com (unless it’s a HK rom-com, possibly featuring Andy Lau in his 20s)"
