Back in September the popular local jazz-pop duo Viva Sherry, after ten years of playing together put their band on a temporary hiatus. However, I’m happy to say that vocalist & keyboard player Okuda Satoko is still playing music both as a solo performer and in collaboration with other musicians. This coming Monday (15th), she will be performing with the artist Ashida Mellow at Urbanguild‘s Sound & Picture Book event: オトエホン-21 (event details below). As she sings the artist will paint! Check out Ashida Mellow’s art on his website gallery. And here’s a song from Viva Sherry’s final performance at the live house Nega・Posi:

Location: To find Urbanguild, from Sanjo Dori go down Kiyamachi Dori (this is the narrow street running alongside Takase stream) Urbanguild is on the east side (left hand side as you walk down from Sanjo) after approximately 150 metres. It’s on the 3rd floor of New Kyoto Building – access by elevator or stairs. Here’s a map.
