Omoiyari means empathy. It’s kind of like acting on empathy. It’s in between consideration, sympathy, empathy, it’s like…people use it for guests. You think about your guest and what they would like. And you prepare for them, and that’s one use of omoiyari.

It follows me in my understanding about myself – my own identity and then also kind of question what it is to be an American citizen – what it means, what rights I have, what this country has done to the world, and how we can improve it and how we can improve equality.

I guess backtracking to why I’m making this film, after the election a lot of my fans were just really distraught, I could really tell. It was really bugging them. And I understand that and I think a lot of people look to my music to be kind of euphoric and to help them get through things so I think for me to do this is something that is important for…I do this for my listeners, to kind of help them cope or just to have a better understanding.
