Composer/producer/actor/director/vocalist extraordinaire Makigami Koichi is one of Japan’s most charismatic performers. His solo vocal pyrotechnics and dynamic band Hikashu have thrilled audiences the world over. Combining extended vocal techniques from around the world with the sounds of theremin, mouth harps, trumpet and more he has fashioned a musical language that is imaginative, adventurous and utterly charming. Here he collaborates with two Russian/Mongolian musicians in a varied program of songs, improvisations and compositions, again crossing borders and boundaries to fashion a uniquely new musical world.
