At Cafe OTO

Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we host French folk artist Emmanuelle Parrenin. Founding figure of the revivalist folk scene in France, she toured everywhere and played with Gentiane or Melusine, as well as Didier Malherbe, Vincent Segal or Alan Stivell. She is however best known for having recorded thirty years ago an enigmatic and beautiful album, “Maison Rose” highly sought on e-bay: where ultimate post-folk meets trad and experimental electro-acoustic.

On Saturday, Happened presents a Taiwanese Experimental Music showcase with sets from Alois Yang, Yen-Tzu Chang, Chiyou Ding and Lucia H Chung, alongside an installation from Yang in the Project Space

Full listings below. We look forward to seeing you here.

NEW ON OTOROKU:

KAN MIKAMI / JOHN EDWARDS / ALEX NEILSON – LIVE AT CAFE OTO (PRE-ORDER)

Japanese bluesman Kan Mikami is nothing less than an unalloyed force of nature. A skin-shredding blast of frozen wind from the poor, rural north of Japan that he calls home. In the late 1960s, like thousands of other Japanese young people Mikami made his way to Tokyo in search of a life different from that of his parents. Since then he has forcefully carved out a space for himself in the culture as a modernist poet, a raging folk singer, an author, a actor, an engaging TV personality, and one of Japan’s most uniquely powerful performers

HAINO KEIJI / JOHN BUTCHER – LIGHT NEVER BRIGHT ENOUGH LP/CD (PRE-ORDER)

Keiji Haino: Vocal, Guitars, etc
John Butcher: Saxophones and Feedback

Keiji Haino, one of the foremost exponents of the Japanese avant-garde, always provides a masterclass in constantly shifting improvisation. John Butcher is a saxophonist of rare grace and power, who has expanded the vocabulary of the saxophone far beyond the conventions of jazz and other musics, to encompass a staggering range of multiphonics, overtones, percussive sounds, and electronic feedback.
