Eclectic and unexpected, Hybrid Soul (photo by Ryan Bruss) brings together rock ‘n’ roll with taiko (traditional Japanese percussion) to deliver a modern version of “Bon” (summer festival) folk tunes.
ISAKU KAGEYAMA (center) on taiko; CHRIS YOUNG (right) on guitar and PAT GLYNN (left) on bass.
The group made its debut at Mandala in Minami Aoyama, Tokyo, Nov. 11, 2008. (Another clip.)
Stay tuned for more.
