Yuka & MuKaSHi BaNaSHi @ The Stone 8/11/12

It was wonderful from start to finish.  The vocalist fit in nicely with the amazing musicians.  For one piece toward the end she played a taishogoto.  It sounded great and was very interesting.  The strings are in a small section and the rest of the beautiful instrument has buttons and keys.  She played the strings with a bow.  It was set up on the floor and she crouched down to play it.  I loved the sound.

The music and the band was phenomenal.  I wanted to get up and dance so badly.  It was surprising that the place was less than half full.

Yuka & MuKaSHi BaNaSHi Yuka (voice, taishogoto, ukulele, electronics) Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz (bass) Brian Marsella (rhodes, keyboards) Tim Keiper (percussion) Yuval Lion (percussion) Folktales from Japan. A rare performance of otherworldly original compositions rooted the tradition of tribal music commonly heard on Sado Island. Not to be missed!!!
