Background Information

Missão e Motivação

Based in New York City, the musical group KIOKU presents traditional Asian folk music within a new context of collaborative experimentation and improvisation. The trio utilizes East and Southeast Asian percussion (Japanese taiko, Korean gongs, and Filipino kulintang), live laptop electronics and alto saxophone. While deeply committed to the preservation of musical traditions, KIOKU (Japanese for "memory") acknowledges the plasticity of tradition and freely adopts musical techniques found within improv-based and new music circles.
