About the Program
Visit the “radiant, uplifting soundscape” (NPR) of violinist, singer, and composer Kishi Bashi. Named a Favorite Discovery of 2012 by NPR, Kishi Bashi has captivated audiences across the globe with his loop-based live show. Experience a breadth of bright and soaring avant-pop songs, gentle ballads, and improvisations in a unique kaleidoscopic style.
The Seattle-born, Norfolk-raised artist is currently working on a songfilm titled Omoiyari, in which he embarks on a personal quest to come to terms with Japanese American incarceration by performing music in locations that are relevant to this dark period in US history.
Kishi Bashi is the stage name of singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kaoru Ishibashi. In addition to releasing three albums as a solo artist, Kishi Bashi has recorded and toured internationally as a violinist with renowned artists Regina Spektor, Sondre Lerche, and most recently Of Montreal, the Athens, Georgia-based indie rock band.
