ICHI, from Nagoya in Japan, takes the notion of a one-man band to new limits, combining his quirky handmade instrument inventions (Stilt-bass, Kalilaphone, Balloon-pipes, Hatbox-pedal-drum, Tapumpet, Percussion-shoes & Hat-trick-hat) with steel-drum, ping-pong balls, toys & everyday objects all in the space of one short set. Having toured as a solo artist in Japan, the UK and Europe, playing at festivals including GreenmanEnd of the RoadBoomtownIn The WoodsGreat EscapeCamp Bestival and Glastonbury.  

ICHI has been making waves and it’s unsurprising he is championed by the likes of David Byrne (Talking Heads)BBC 6‘s Steve LamacqGideon CoeTom Ravenscroft & Lauren Laverne, and Deerhoof who invited him to play with them in New York at their event The Wordless Music Series. 

In 2019 Ichi’s â€˜Tobogan Gakki’  art instillation went viral online receiving 1.5 million views.

filmmaker and producer KATE V LEWIS (https://katevlewis.com/) made a short documentary film about a song called ‘HOT MOCHI’ that I made with my sons. I hope you enjoy it 👀

映像作家&プロデューサーのKATE V LEWISによって、僕が作詞作曲を依頼されて息子達と一緒に制作した’HOT MOCHI’ という曲についてのショートドキュメンタリーフィルムが公開されましたので、お時間あるときに観てもらえたら嬉しいです👀
