The new album reflects the band’s distinct blend of melodic
elements within unusual harmonic and rhythmical textures,
painting a finely detailed sonic image of rich colors and
accented bold lines.
“Kukushai are not your usual jazz band at all. Sometimes it seems they just go crazy and fight through the huge genre palette of punk, rock, pop and anything alternative.” BEEHYPE
The trio in its unconventional nature, weaves the songs
together and seeks new possibilities in expression within
the fields of alternative genres, but does not bypass
musical nostalgia for novelty’s sake. Live, the compositions
enable open improvisation that gives way to musical
freedom, which results in an impressive, rich and above all,
characteristic sound story.
The lyrics are playful, often surrealist, but predominantly
expressing the bewilderment of man in the world he wants
to control but has no real grasp of.
a multidisciplinary artist, combining classical, jazz, folk & modern singing
