O YAMA O is a music project of Rie Nakajima and Keiko Yamamoto. They try to create a soundscape inspired by old Japanese folk tales, anthropology and domestic life routines etc.
“Sudden sounds and spiky gestures were enacted by Yamamoto, chanting words and stamping feet. Nakajima responded by touching her objects, prodding almost caressing them towards signs of life through sound, not unlike the role of a midwife.” – Virginia Whiles
Freshly-baked biscuits will be served. Free entry but donation welcome.
