We are delighted to welcome Japanese neo-folk fusion band, Mitsune to the venue for a special headline performance. Support TBA
Mitsune is a Japanese neo-folk fusion band from Berlin, with members hailing from Japan, Greece and Australia. Led by a powerful duo of female Tsugaru shamisen players, accompanied with double bass and percussion, Mitsune is a musical and visual feast that evokes raw emotion, folkloric imagery, driving grooves and wild fashions. They play a mix of reimagined Japanese folksongs and original tracks drawing from eastern blues, jazz, cinematic and dance music influences. On stage, Mitsune creates a visual fantasy-world with striking costume and stage design to complement their ecstatic performance style. They released their album ‘Hazama’ in 2022, praised in Songlines and Rolling Stone and entering the Transglobal World Music Chart’s Top 10 Albums. They are set to release a follow-up EP in 2023, supported by shows across EU and UK.
