Maher Shalal Hash Baz / A qui Avec Gabriel - Minor Musics Japan
Minor Musics Japan Tour closes at ISSUE with sets by Maher Shalal Hash Baz and à qui avec Gabriel. The artistic alter ego of Tori Kudo. MSHB frequently features large ensembles of untrained musicians that embrace error, structure, and structurelessness. Accordionist and vocalist à qui avec Gabriel creates stark, ethereal and whispering melodies that evoke European folk music and Erik Satie.
Minor Musics Japan Tour 2014 comes to four American cities this September featuring performances by venerated artists of Japan's musical underground: Ché-SHIZU, Maher Shalal Hash Baz and à qui avec Gabriel. Organized by Brooklyn's ISSUE Project Room in collaboration with Wild Beast at CALARTS, Marfa Live Arts, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, this landmark tour touches the fringes of rock and pop with a naivist bent, crossing folk, improvisation, and a gleeful embrace of the unpolished.
