Kato Bookbird

Arashi to the artist roster

Pleased to welcome Arashi to Kato Bookbird's roster! Arashi (Akira Sakata, Johan Berthling, Paal Nilssen-Love) had it's debut during Molde Jazzfestival in July 2013 and entered the studio just a few days later to record the album "Arashi," released on Trost Records on both CD and vinyl. The music is improvised and of high energy. All three players are known for their stamina and will to push themselves and the music beyond traditional boundaries.

In the Fall of 2015, the Bookbirds had the great chance to see Arashi live in action at the Météo Festival, in Mulhouse; very impressive & energetically unstable with exceptional playing from all musicians. Fortunately for the ones who have missed the event, it's well documented by France Musique' A l'Improviste.

Fast forward, Feb 2016 will see them on tour in Japan once again in conjunction with the release of their second album — "Semikujira". The band is also available for September 2016 dates in Europe:
