K5 Loft Streaming with Calm & Eita
This Sunday, the 25th April it’s Edition #13 of the Chill Out Tent, and we’re very excited to be starting the event with a session from Tokyo. The K5 Loft Streaming sessions are recorded at a prestigious new venue in the city with some of Tokyo’s finest food, coffee, cocktails and beer in addition to some beautiful guest rooms & suites. The hosts describe the concept as follows…
‘These streaming events deliver Bedroom / Lounge Music which is courteously selected by two Japanese sound curators, Calm and EITA, who curate music for the hotel. The setting scene for the first session is ”Nap.” People everywhere in the world including Tokyo are facing various difficulties lately. We believe that we may need take a rest a bit time (Nap) staying home and living calmly. Then, the world will slowly wake up and move forward. The two sound curators alternately put records on to create an impromptu playlist. Music is selected from a wide range of Japanese and international records.’
We think you’ll agree this sounds a perfect fit for the Chill Out Tent, expect beautiful calming music presented with reverence and style.

Enjoyed in Japan through the tradition of Hanami or ‘flower viewing’ and engaged from a philosophical view point of ‘Mono No Aware’ that celebrates the beauty of transience and impermanence. You may not be able to see much blossom depending on your location or season, if so then enjoy the film below, one hour of stunning drone footage and delicate ambience. As featured in our monthly newsletter.
