Your brain will never be the same – unique amongst even the most unique, multi instrumentalist musician extraordinaire, the legendary Keiji Haino has been both expanding and destroying humans minds for the past five decades. Kelowna is extremely fortunate to host him for his only other Western Canadian date (and only four shows in Canada total), after not one but two headlining shows at Victoriaville International festival in Quebec, and then a collaborative show with post-metal group Sumac in Vancouver on May 21st (courtesy of Quiet City).
This is a special opportunity to see Haino inside the Summerhill Winery Pyramid. While he is perhaps best known for his work on the guitar, audiences in Kelowna will be treated to a special one off performance of him playing a variety of percussive instruments, with likely a few surprises as well.
From his solo work, to renowned groups such as Fushitsusha, to his countless collaborations with the likes of Peter Brotzmann and Jim O’Rourke, the constant factor in all his music is the making of scorchingly beautiful and otherworldly sound.
Something exceptional enough to be remembered forever, anyone with even a passing interest in the art of creating should be present. There is limited space in the acoustically sublime pyramid so grab tickets fast via the link below.
Doors open at 7:30pm and the concert will begin at 8pm prompt. Admission at the door for the concert is a mere $25 for the public and $20 for students and Alternator members. Hosted by Skin And Bones Music Series.
