Description

Det japanske storband kommer til at pakke ALICE med musikere, traditionelle instrumenter fra hele verden, blæsere og synthesizers i en hæsblæsende koncertoplevelse, der genfortolker den traditionelle minyo-musik

“Minyo” er traditionelle japanske folkesange, oftest unikke i melodi og tekst alt efter hvilke regioner de oprinder fra. Minyo Crusaders har sat sig for at genoplive de gamle, glemte og hengemte sange med inspiration fra bl.a. cumbia, afrobeat og free jazz-saxofoner. Lydbilledet sender tankerne fra Japans afsidesliggende bjergegne mod Pharoah Sanders, Fela Kuti og tidløse grooves.

Resultatet kunne høres på debuten “Echoes of Japan”, der udkom tidligere på året og høstede stor international ros fra bl.a. Gilles Peterson, der kalder pladen for en ‘fascinerende og højt anbefalelsesværdig plade’. 

Selvom Crusaders’ musik er ny, sprudlende og opfindsom, så er den “musikalske konservering” i centrum, som deres guitarist og grundlægger, Katsumi Tanaka, har fortalt til Bandcamp, så handler det om at bevare minyo-musikken. Det har han selv gjort gennem sin enorme samling af 78 RPM’er.

Glæd dig til en unik oplevelse med et unik band, som genfortolker den japanske musik arv gennem et globalt udsyn.

In English
Minyo Crusaders rework traditional Japanese folk songs (minyo) with Latin, African and Caribbean rhythms to create some of the most infectious music between South America and Japan. The punchy and inventive arrangements of this ten-piece big band breathe new life into these traditional working-class folk songs. Their debut album "Echoes of Japan” is set for a worldwide release in April 2019 but the band have already made waves across the globe picking up fans such as Ry Cooder who described them as "the best band I have heard in many years”.
