Kitchen. Label is proud to announce the debut Singapore performance by one of Japan’s most bright and able singer-songwriters Ichiko Aoba at The Substation Theatre as part of her first Asia tour on 19th November 2015.
An artist on the rise 25 years young, Ichiko Aoba has not only built a reputation as an accomplished classical guitar player but also gained accolades for her voice which adds an aura of beauty and mystique to her intricate and complex compositions. Since 2010, she has released 4 solo albums on Victor Entertainment and most notably shared collaboration projects with Ryuichi Sakamoto, Haruomi Hosono, Keiichi Oyamada (Cornelius), Taylor Deupree (12K) and haruka nakamura (Kitchen. Label). Ichiko Aoba has participated in major festivals such as Fuji Rock Festival and Montreux Jazz Festival in Japan as well as having recently completed a 15-city Japan Tour in support of her latest album ‘0’.
Ichiko Aoba will be supported by Singapore’s very own Aspidistrafly. The duo, which consist of April Lee and Ricks Ang, play a flickeringly filmic mixture of ambient folk with gossamer-like vocal harmonies and guitar-based drone wrapped in a delicate lo-fi haziness. Aspidistrafly will be performing songs from their album ’A Little Fable’ and new songs from their forthcoming 3rd album. Fans can expect a special collaboration stage between Ichiko Aoba and Aspidistrafly at this concert.
‘Ichiko Aoba – Live in Singapore’ is promoted by Kitchen. Label in collaboration with Moon Romantic (Japan) and with support from The Diarists. Catch Ichiko Aoba in this one night only event, tickets are now on sale via Peatix.
