Kishi Bashi

Kishi Bashi is a classically trained violinist. He crafts mystical sounds with his musical partner Tall Tall Trees. Each song is built from the ground up using loops of K’s percussive beatboxing, soaring violin textures and ethereal voice. Tall Tall Trees showcases his versatility on banjo by beating the drumlike body while maintaining his harmonious loops. Together they perform and release the soundscape onto unexpecting audience members; taking liberties within the structure to put on a lively and fervent show. Kishi Bashi’s new record “Lighght” is an indie sensation; it balances pop with mythical sounding art-rock for a colorful and expansive ride.
