Kazha is a rock band founded by a Japanese singer-songwriter Kazuha Oda (Kazha) and a guitarist Hideki Matsushige in 2009.
Kazuha Oda is a classically trained singer who has worked in various genres of music from Classic to Heavy Metal. Her work has appeared on the iTunes Top 100 charts of numerous countries for a significant amount of time. She is an Official Ambassadors of “Music Export Memphis” and currently touring nationally, representing the Birth Place of Rock’n’Roll Memphis, Tennessee.
After the release of their first album in 2010, Kazha made its first U.S.A. debut performing at San Francisco’s Asian Heritage Celebration, sharing the stage with hip-hop group Far East Movement. In September 2010, the band made its first Anime Convention debut at Colorado’s Premier Anime Convention “Nan Desu Kan.” They also appeared at “Vianco Expo” and made their debut in Mexico that same year. Since then, they have been performing at numerous Anime and Comic Conventions and Festivals around the world.

Kazha represents a new future of music: a fusion of cultures and musical view points that create their sound, combining the softness of a falling feather and the heaviness of a hurricane.
