Sound Anthropology
Formed by Ayana (Jazzy Sport London), Sound Anthropology is a meeting point of spiritual jazz infused with inspirations from both Japanese Shintō ideologies and Hindustani music. Drawing from Ayana’s original works, the band has together expanded a style that encompasses Rhythm, Raga, Tala and Maqam. With Ayana on Voice, Tommy Khosla on Sitar, Vishnu Vijayan on Tabla, Mohammad Resyad on Oud & Guitar, and Alex Ryder on Bass – they let the music do the talking and create a meditational groove.

The Kaiju Project
A Japanese inspired jazz group formed by the half Japanese-Austrian pianist Aseo Friesacher. His initial idea was to bring old Japanese folk songs and well known movie soundtracks into a new modern context, but in addition to his compositions, this group has found their very own musical direction: a perfect blend of meditative traditional Japanese music and modern creative jazz. Aseo will team up with Kana, a fantastic flutist from Japan to present their brand new album as a duo.
