O Yama O  31 May 2016

Really happy that O Yama O will be performing at the festival. They are Rie Nakajima and Keiko Yamamoto and they create beautiful performances based on Japanese folk stories. I saw them at the Borealis festival in Bergen earlier this year and was completely transfixed, and in fact booked them there and then. Rie uses tiny everyday objects that she builds into layers of sounds. It will be amazing to see this performed in the evocative Amphis. Londoners will know of Keiko as the co-founder of Cafe Oto. Here's a video of Rie performing with Pierre Berthet earlier this year. Pierre will also be performing this year. More on him in another posting. Click to go to Vimeo, here.
