J-Music Ride – CIBO MATTO and YU SAKAI at Japan Society
The funky, whimsically irreverent Japanese expats Miho Hatori (vocals, drum pad) and Yuka Honda (keyboard, sampler) return to Japan Society’s stage, for the first time as Cibo Matto! Since officially reuniting this year, these downtown darlings are back with their charming lyrics and dizzying array of sounds. This evening also features the international debut of the silky-voiced keyboardist/singer-songwriter Yu Sakai, straight from Tokyo. With R&B beats and jazz-fused J-pop melodies, Sakai’s music is an inventive blend of self-mixed instrumentation and multi-layered vocals. Downtown New York collides with modish Shibuya in this one-night-only J-music mash-up!
