Santa Dharma is a Tokyo-based husband-wife indie rock/new wave band consisting of Tomo and Holly. They meld toy synthesizers, fuzzy electric strings, drum machines, and Buddhist accents, to create lo-fi, ethereal music that resurrects a retro future. Santa Dharma also has a home music studio where they host small live shows, featuring international artists, and live stream them online. The name of their band combines the founder of Zen Buddhism, Boddhidharma with Holly’s birthplace California (where cities are often named “San” or “Santa” something). They released their first EP, Sakura High, in June 2019 and are working on their full album to be released in 2020.
