TOKALA

TOKALA is the name of a mysterious country in Central Asia which had a connection to Japan via the Silk Road, which was responsible for bringing Middle Eastern culture to ancient Japan. The band explores the sound of this ancient connection where cultural exchange left an imprint which became an integral part of Japanee culture.

Shoko Nagai performs klezmer, Balkan and experimental music with world-renowned musicians on piano and accordion and composes original scores for films and live performances. An "MVP" of the downtown jazz scene, she has performed with John Zorn, Erik Friedlander, Ikue Mori, Marc Ribot, Frank London, Matana Roberts, Miho Hatori (Cibo Matto), Satoshi Takeishi, Butch Morris, Elliot Sharp, Jeremiah Lockwood and many eclectic performers. Nagai frequently tours internationally, performing in Sweden (2009 Nobel Prize ceremony for German writer, Herta Muller).

Shoko Nagai (Accordion); Brandon Seabrock ( Guitar); Stomu Takeishi (Bass) and Satoshi Takeishi (Drums).
