Tori Kudo & Maher Shalal Hash Baz


There's a lot more music to be discovered in Japan than Noise and J-Pop. The singer, guitarist and songwriter Tori Kudo is an avowed naïvist and anti-nuclear activist. For his band Maher Shalal Hash Baz he constantly seeks out different musicians to interpret his wonderful melodies, for preference with no knowledge of their instruments. When he and his ensemble walk on stage, anything can happen. For the concert in HAU1, Tori Kudo is travelling in from Japan with 7 musicians. But he just might recruit a few more in Berlin at the last moment.
