DONKEY MONKEY Short Info

This funky duo draws an ink moustache on the face of international creative music. Yuko, from the Japan vibrant rock scene, and Eve, with her exploring piano fingers deep down the throst of European contemporary music, found each other in Alsace, France and gave birth to a new creature the Donkey Monkey. An animal with eight tentacles and two voices giving an intense rhythmical panorama of sounds as well as vocal interludes. For eight years now, the members of Donkey Monkey have together developed their very own take on improvisation and composition.
