This is a triple artist page for the Japanese SAWA, the Japanese group SAWA and the half Japanese / half Cuban Sawa Kobayashi. 1) SAWA (河内沙和 - Sawa Kouchi) is a Japanese born singer that lives in the suburbs, about one hour from Tokyo. Her mother made the pitch-perfect girl pick up the violin at the tender age of four, and by age 10, she took up the piano out of her own will. SAWA first appeared in 2003 as a member of the group Jack Knife under Stardust Management. The group performed cover routines live and disbanded in April 2004 without releasing any material.
