Please help us spread the word about KIOKU’s California tour. We will be performing in San Francisco, San Jose, Stockton, Los Angeles and San Diego, and our debut CD Both Far and Near, will be available prior to the official release on Quiet Design Records. Thanks again and we hope to see you at one of our shows!
Based in New York City, the experimental music group KIOKU creates a new terrain between traditional Asian music and collaborative improvisation. The trio consists of Wynn Yamami (taiko and percussion), Christopher Ariza (live electronics), and Ali Sakkal (saxophones). While grounded in historical musical practices, KIOKU (Japanese for “memory”) embraces the plasticity of tradition and freely employs improvisational and avant-garde musical techniques.
