Kukushai is proudly presenting their album FRUITILE, released on 5.5.2017

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.



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.

While they can’t be labeled as either jazz, pop, punk, experimental or folk music, still the influence of all these styles can be found in their sound.

Rok Zalokar - multi-awarded pianist & composer

Eva Pozenel - a multidisciplinary artist, combining classical, jazz, folk & modern singing

SunMi Hong  - one of the most in-demand drummers from the Amsterdam scene

Blue Trail

Oh Brothers, the lyrics are taken from a poem by a well known Slovenian poet, Srecko Kosovel, translated into English. It reflects the ambivalence of human nature, the absurd reality of our lives, the eternal confusion, the beauty and terror of our own creation.
