Ichi

The Perfumed Garden

Bristol-based Japanese experimental singer-songwriter, instrument- maker and performance artist Ichi takes the notion of a one-man band to new limits combining his handmade inventions with steel-drum, toys and everyday objects, creating music that’s a melting-pot of punk, reggae and dub, Henri Salvador, tribal music and old scratchy 78s. There’s an ancient, ritualistic feel to his performances which have taken place in Japan, the UK and Europe, playing at festivals including Latitude, Glastonbury, and Boomtown. He has been championed by the likes of Talking Heads singer David Byrne BBC 6 Music DJs Steve Lamacq and Lauren Laverne.
