Yunohana Variations, featuring Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Susie Ibarra and YoshimiO, is the second tour to be announced in a series of special live shows commissioned by OUTLANDS, the new national experimental touring network.
The three improvisational luminaries; multi-instrumentalist YoshimiO, avant-garde percussionist Susie Ibarra, and artist Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe will be performing together as Yunohana Variations for the first time in the UK. Selected and produced by Supersonic Festival Birmingham, we are delighted to be working in partnership with KARST to bring this talented trio to Plymouth in July, for one night only.
If you love jazz, then this is the perfect evening for you. YoshimiO is a drummer and member of the revolutionary group Boredoms, whilst Susie Ibarra, is one of the most significant percussionists and composers of our time, known for her work within contemporary, avant-garde, jazz, classical, and world music and performing in the band Dreamtime Ensemble. Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe is a multidisciplinary artist and was a key fixture of Chicago’s experimental community throughout the 90s and early 2000s, Robert has also performed under the name Lichens, a member of the legendary bandOm.
All three musicians come from different aesthetic backgrounds and enjoy crossing into various sonic territories. Despite the trio never having performed live in the UK together before, they have recorded an album, Flowers Of Sulphur, which was released on Thrill Jockey in February this year. Find out more about the album.
