Vocals

Miho

Percussion, Vocals


Musical duo Kuri is composed of husband-and-wife Katsu and Miho.

Katsu's musical journey started with an exploration of folk, rock, and
experimental noise music. In the early 1990s, his interest extended to the
resonance of ethnic instruments. His travels around Europe and Asia taught him more about music and sound. He found that despite the diverse differences in musical style between genres of the East and West, music can cross borders and appeal to our feelings. He also came to the understanding that making music and exploring musical instruments are universal among people of all ages and cultures.

Katsu leads workshops teaching people how to make simple instruments out of bamboo and how play them. Recently, he has been incorporating poetry and storytelling with music, and is further exploring possibilities with sound.

Miho's musical history started when she was about 11 years old. She played the trumpet in a school band, and in university, played in classical
concerts. But she felt something was missing. She yearned for something
more. She decided to travel to the West. She stopped playing music for a
while, because the way she had been playing up until then felt very
limiting. All this changed when she went to lreland. There, she met
musicians who played from the heart--music connected to the land. That
connection brings them together, and gives them meaning and joy.

There, Katsu joined Miho, and Kuri was born in Dublin. Being in lreland made Miho want to get back in touch with her own roots to make music not in a traditional way, but with a spirit generated and informed by their Japanese blood, and yet also infused with qualities of some of the places they visit and the music they hear along the way.
