Festival Neo-Voice #1

Makigami, along with voice performer Tenko, produces a music festival called "Festival Neo-Voice", which are held on March 29-31 2010 at Aoyama Round Theater, Tokyo. It is an ambitious undertaking indeed, even for Makigami.

The festival focuses on the possibility of human voice expression. The day 1 is a series of unaccompanied solo acts of top voice performers from Japan. Also, Haino Keiji, the king of Japanese underground music, will perform a completely unaccompanied voice solo set. It is probably the first time for him and he has been active in music since late 1960s. The day 2 is devoted to Bolot Bairyshev, a popular singer from Altai Republic. He will sing Altaian epic narrative songs called Kai. And the day 3 is the great Japanese songbook concert of Makigami, with the augmented Hikashu.
