SAICOBAB
SAICOBAB is the Japanese ensemble of vocalist YoshimiO (Boredoms, OOIOO), Yoshida Daikiti (sitar), and acclaimed in Japan Motoyuki “Hama” Hamamoto (percussion, gamelan). SAICOBAB masterfully blend traditional Indian music with melodies and unexpected rhythms using unorthodox instrumentation to create utterly distinct modern ragas. On their debut album SAB SE PURANI BAB, YoshimiO’s leaping, animated, effected vocal melodies dance fluidly through Daikiti’s intricate sitar patterns. The entrancing synergy of Hama’s rhythmic pulse drives and shapes the aptly named SAICOBAB’s sound to one that is at once rooted in ancient tradition, and wholly new.

SAICO means “the most ancient”, and “BAB” stands for “baby” in Japanese. SAB SE PURANI means “the most ancient baby girl” in Hindi. The connections made are a reflection of the deep connections made musically between traditional Indian and Japanese music and spiritual practices.

Louise Bock aka Taralie Peterson also known in earlier solo work as Tar Pet as well as playing in the legendary psych band Spires That in the Sunset Rise since 2001. Taralie works with mainly sax, clarinet, cello, voice, and denatured lap harp these days. On her new album as Louise Bock released in May 2018 on Feeding Tube records, titled “Repetitives in Illocality” she is allowing for more of a conceptual approach using atonal/repetitive ideas with a personal invection. A Sort of bridge between her earlier work in songwriting with her band but also allowing for spontenaity and improvisation that colored a lot of her explorations in the past 7 years with the jazz percussionist Michael Zerang and others. She is creating mystical, ecstatic, spiritual, otherworldly explorations with a completely unique point of view. Taralie continues to actively collaborate with other musicians, mixed media artists, and dancers. She has traveled across the country and Europe with her band many times over the past 17 years, released 3 solo albums, and 10 full length lp's with her band.
