SAICOBAB
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.
