Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?
I’m Tsunari and I’m a singer and songwriter that’s moved from Korat, Thailand to London. My dad is British-Trinidadian and my mom is originally from Thailand. I was born in Kettering. I spent most of my childhood traveling from countries to countries and from school to school which plays a big part in my music taste and my identity, hence why I’m quite quirky sometimes ahaha.
How did you get into music?
Growing up in Thailand as a mixed-race child was challenging for me. I got bullied a lot and some kids in class would have nicknames for me which were harsh. So music was the only outlet that made me feel like I belonged to something/somewhere and there was no judgment regardless of who you are or where you are from. For me, Music is universal love.
What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?
Confidence. I think the bullying and the constant comments judging me about my features left a scar growing up. But I’ve finally overcome it, understood life, and I am happy and grateful for that. I’m learning every day and becoming the person I am today.
What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?
Honesty, depth, and loving who you are… and not taking crap from anybody.
Tell us about any new music you have coming out? When is it coming out? What is it about?
My new music is dropping really soon. I’m dropping a Thai project next month. Even though I’m in London right now I want to give back something for my Thai people, especially young girls. I want them to listen to my music and know that “you are an absolute BOMB! You can be whatever you aspire to be as long as you believe in yourself and take that step.”
Anything else you want the audience to know about you?
You can keep up to date with my music releases, daily life, and maybe your next new Thai recipe on my socials!
