Kishi Bashi and his loops of sound are returning to the First Unitarian Church on 9/14
After a dazzling performance at Firefly Music Festival last weekend, violinist Kishi Bashi is bringing his soaring, uplifting indie-pop to Philly on September 14th. The singer and multi-instrumentalist has worked and performed with of Montreal, Alexi Murdoch, and is a founding member of indie band Jupiter One. His 2012 solo album 151a was self- recorded and self-produced himself (who goes by K Ishibashi in his other musical endeavors). His live performances feature loops of notes, vocals and sounds, carving out room for solo playing and lots of experimentation. Tickets for the First Unitarian Sanctuary show go on sale Friday, June 28th. More information can be found here. Check out Kishi Bashi’s techniques in his Tiny Desk Concert from NPR Music, and watch a video of him playing Firefly below.
