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 and hat-trick-hat) with steel-drum, ping-pong balls, toys and everyday objects all in the space of one set. To see ICHI live is to witness something so playful and unusual you know that you´re experiencing something entirely new.

Unsurprisingly he is championed by the likes of David Byrne, BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq, Gideon Coe, Tom Ravenscroft and Lauren Laverne who says of his third album Maru, “Hilarious, bonkers and brilliant.” The album features guest vocals from This Is The Kit frontwoman Kate Stables, his wife Rachael Dadd and Rozi Plain.
