Born on September 26th, Kaori Aihara (愛原圭織) is a voice actress from Kanto who is affiliated to ProductionGIW, StudioGIW's music-making branch. Alongside some voice acting roles for videogames and other kinds of media from StudioGIW itself like KILLZWALD and GIEEVAL, she's had several commissioned singing roles for other external media as well, most notably being the Taiko no Tatsujin series. Other credits of her works include singing roles in selected Touhou Project arrangements composed by indie doujin SYNC.ART'S and Kaori herself being one of the two members of the PraimMary (ぷらいむまり) duet with StudioGIW affiliate Aya Sinno (真野綾).
Kaori Aihara happens to be one of the Taiko artists to be Taiko no Tatsujin fans themselves, as she often shared her song preferences (with her favorite Namco Original being mint tears) and gaming progress on different corners of the Internet from time to time. Even the Taiko Team grew fond of Aihara's recurring contributions, up to friendly attribute the Yojou (幼女, 'little girl') nickname to the young artist! After her last credited role for Don to Katsu no Jikuu Daibouken, she went on an hiatus period which ended on September 2016 (link).
