--------------Kaori Kataoka hails from Tokyo, Japan. She discovered Trance music 8 years ago when she was introduced to it by a European friend she met who was visiting her country. Ever since then she has fallen in love with this genre, but it is with the sub-genre of Uplifting and Orchestral Trance that she cherishes the most. Japan is a rising nation for Trance music now with artists like Hiroki Nagamine, Shintaro, Hiroyuki ODA, Masaru Hinaiji and more. Kaori started her podcast "A Way of Life" on Soundcloud to show her love and support for this music because she strongly believes that beautiful things should be shared across the world.
Trance music has a small community especially when one compares it to other electronic genres such as House or Dubstep and it is rare indeed to see a female Trance producer from Japan so it is with great surprise and joy that we have such a talented and enthusiastic young woman from Japan flying the flag of her country. Kaori's personal favorite artists are Manuel Rocca from Venezuela, Andy Blueman from Slovenia, Bernis from Japan, tranzLift from Czech Republic, Illitheas from Germany, Ronny K from Czech Republic and Kelly Andrew from USA
Outside of creating Trance sets on Soundcloud Kaori is a passionate Ballerina dancer and part time Fashion Model. She hopes to participate in Asia's Next Top Model in 2018. A keen PS4 gamer you can follow her on Twitch.TV under the alias "petiteballerina".
You can also follow Kaori on Facebook. Her group page for her Trance sets "A Way of Life" have a loyal following and some of her followers are even famous names in the Uplifting Trance scene.
