Here’s our old friend the shakuhachi player Yoshida Koichi with word of the shows he has lined up for July with his band Yugao and other special guests:
Kyoto’s most eccentric fusion quartet Yugao presents an evening of reflections on the songs of Kyoto, a joint event with singer-songwriter Kenichi Hasegawa and biwa and bass player Masayoshi Okubo. Come enjoy the unique and poignant voices of ‘Deep Kyoto’…
Does Koichi have the right to use the term “Deep Kyoto” in such a cavalier fashion? Of course he does! He’s practically one of the family! Here are the details:
There are two shows at Zac Baran on Friday the 15th and Sunday the 17th of July. Kenichi Hasegawa will join Yugao on the 15th and Masayoshi Okubo will play with them on the 17th.
