AKARI MOCHIZUKI +  HIBIKI ICHIKAWA
Hibiki Ichikawa is the only professional player of tsugaru shamisen; a traditional 3-stringed instrument played using a large pick called a bachi. In recognition of his great skill, he has been qualified to perform under a « Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa », which is granted only to the most proficient artists. Hibiki frequently performs at festivals and formal occasions, including the Japan Matsuri in Trafalgar Square, and at the Japanese Emperor’s birthday celebrations at the Japanese Embassy, and has also participated in a theatre production at the Edinburgh Festival.
Akari is from Iwakuni in Yamaguchi prefecture. When she was 3 years old, she started singing enka (a variety of traditional Japanese music which often takes the form of sentimental ballads) thanks to the influence of her father, who was a great fan of the genre. Akari studied drama in Cambridge and modern music in London, and started working as a professional singer in 2009. She has performed as an enka and minyo (Japanese folk music) singer for numerous occasions, including WOMAD 2010, Hyper Japan and Japan Matsuri.

YOSHIO MACHIDA and MAIKO DATE
« Sound  is  Body,  Body  is  Sound »  is  an  improvised performance  by  2  Japanese  artists  Yoshio  Machida  (music)  and  Maiko Date  (dance).  Before  performing, each  audience  chooses  one  card  from  some  cards  that Maiko  Date  has  in  her  hands.Different  short  poetry  is written  in  each  card.  Each  audience  will  experience  the same  performance  with  difffent  « theme ».  The  word might be related to your life, trouble and solution, what you  want  to  see,  etc.  Like  tarot  reading, audience  tries  to  think  the  relation  between  the  word(s)  and  the performance. Sound is Body, Body is Sound.

STICK IN THE WHEEL
Stick in the Wheel are no ordinary folk band. Their highly anticipated debut album « From Here » is made of aggressive and intentionally raw recordings, cobbled together in Essex warehouses and East London kitchens. The tales of everyday life feature carboot swindlers, lorry drivers and London rioters sitting seamlessly beside traditional songs of prisons, hammer-wielding blacksmiths and 18th century madhouses.
« We see this music as part of our culture and we’re not pretending to be chimney sweeps or 17th century dandies. »
The band is spearheaded by Nicola Kearey’s fierce uncompromising vocal delivery, and underpinned by sparse taut arrangements. ‘From Here’ follows a handful of acclaimed EPs and Static Caravan 7″, appearances on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, sessions on BBC6Music and Radio X, plus four BBC Folk Award 2015/2016 nominations. It was awarded the fRoots Magazine Critics Poll Album of the Year 2015.
« This is our culture, our tradition. »
« Stick In The Wheel are ripping apart the preconceptions surrounding folk music » Clashmusic
« Mixing traditional songs with their own, the critically lauded newcomers blended storytelling with sophisticated harmonies. A great live band » The Guardian

AMP STUDIO
Amp Studio is the solo project from Richard Amp, founding member of AMP, the electronic
‘space rock’ shoegaze group that came out of Bristol and London in the early 1990’s.
Alongside fellow sonic pioneers Flying Saucer Attack and Third Eye Foundation.
Richard started Amp Studio (originally monikered as A.M.P. Studio) from the need to create
a counterpoint to his work inside Amp, as an experimentation vehicle for ideas, and a
home generally for his creative output that did not fit within the Amp cannon.
Amp Studio has released 4 albums and a smattering of singles/ep’s since 1997
The new album ‘Uncertainty Principles’ comes after a 16 year hiatus in releases.
Record Collector Magazine says it: “Ambient music turned up to 11

DIAL
Dial is the experimental noise rock band of Jacqui Ham (Ut) on guitar and vocals, Rob Smith on guitar and drum machine and Dom Weeks (Furious Pig, Het) on synth and bass. Dial construct songs using the textures of guitars and machines at the intersection of noise, melody and dissonance.

PEKKO KAPPI
I, Pekko, am a player of Jouhikko – the ancient Finnish-Karelian bowed lyre. My music has been described like this: « In his hands the rough sound of weaved horsehair strings are swaying between the foul and lovely – dirty and pure. The old songs of unwritten tradition, timeless and dark stories mediates in his mouth. »

Thanks for reading.

Please get back to me if you want to set up a gig for one of these musicians/bands.

All the best.
