YUNOHANA VARIATIONS: ROBERT AIKI AUBREY LOWE, SUSIE IBARRA & YOSHIMIO TO TOUR THE UK THIS JUNE
Supersonic Festival proudly presents the second tour in a series commissioned by Outlands: The new national experimental music network
Following what is set to be an incredible first tour in May from Matana Roberts & Kelly Jayne Jones (TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE FOR MAY 18th IN BIRMINGHAM) produced by Qu Junktions, we excitedly bring our Supersonic curated tour of YUNOHANA VARIATIONS to the UK, with the first performance premiering at Supersonic Festival this June.
Three improvisational luminaries; multi-instrumentalist YoshimiO (Boredoms, OOIOO, SAICOBAB), avant-garde percussionist Susie Ibarra, and artist Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (Lichens/OM) shall be performing together as Yunohana Variations for the first time in the UK.
All three musicians come from divergent aesthetic backgrounds yet through their collaborative work, they together “enjoy crossing into various sonic territories” (Susie Ibarra).
“Supersonic has had a longstanding relationship with multidisciplinary artist Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, he has proven time and time again that anything he puts his hand to will be extraordinary, we have no doubt that this collaboration with such accomplished artists as Yoshimio and Susie will be nothing short of awe inspiring.” – Lisa Meyer, artistic director, Supersonic Festival Birmingham
