Kukushai - Avantgarde Pop Jazz Rock Live Act in Rotterdam

Kukushai Short Info

Kukushai is an avant-garde pop trio from Netherlands/Slovenia/Korea, writing & performing their original music.
"The expressive and primal voice was merged with piano sounds of many faces through drum strokes and vibrations of fine detail and wild nature."
The trio in its unconventional nature, weaves the songs together and seeks new possibilities in expression within the fields of alternative, pop and jazz genres, but does not bypass musical nostalgia for novelty’s sake.

Live, the compositions enable open improvisation that gives way to various genres, which results in an impressive, rich and above all, characteristic sound story.
While they can’t be labeled as either jazz, pop, punk, experimental or folk music, still the influence of all these styles can be found in their sound.

The group first presented themselves with their self-titled EP(2014) and successfully manifested their unique line-up, "From passionate cries to nearly hypnotics parts, it is certainly quite convincing" as described by some critics.

Since then, the world has changed and Kukushai has changed. They managed to present their music live internationally and find new depths in their sound. This got documented and the new album Fruitile is going to be released on the 5th of May 2017 at ZARŠ records, an independent label that focuses on supporting alternative music and appreciates uncompromising artists who don’t like to put any boundaries on their musical beliefs.

Kukushai lineup:
Rok Zalokar - multi-awarded pianist & composer
Eva Pozenel - a multidisciplinary artist, combining classical & modern singing SunMi Hong - one of the most in-demand drummers from the Amsterdam scene
