Turtle Yama – Japan Now! (JP)

Turtle Yama – Japan Now! (JP)

Electronic soundscapes from Japan. The Japanese daylong music event Japan Now! ends with club atmosphere and cool electro beats and improvisations from two adventurous female musicians. The duo Turtle Yama from Osaka was founded in 2015 by performance artist and guitarist Yuko Kureyama and keyboard player Nahoko Kamei. The collaboration combines both musician's talents through electronic, tape loops, and improvised keyboard figures, woven together into exciting and surprising musical tales. The music and the performers have an intrusive and contagious energy. Dancing on stage is not uncommon during the concerts and who knows if audiences will follow suit? The band recently toured England in 2016 and will now play Aarhus Jazz Festival. With the mini festival Japan Now!, Aarhus Jazz Festival moves into the new venue Hotel Carmen in order to celebrate Aarhus as European Culture Capital and the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Denmark and Japan. On this day, Hotel Carmel will also host concerts by Makiko Hirabyashi Trio, Noritaka Tanaka/Daysuke Takaoka/Julie Kjær and GOAT.

We would like to thank EU Japan Fest, Toyota-Fonden and Augustinus Fonden for their support for Japan Now! ”With support from DJBFA – Composer and Songwriters Production Pool and Kodas Cultural Funds”.
