Wada, Yoshi – “Singing In Unison” – [Em Records]

Yoshiwada2

recorded live 1978 at legendary SoHo performance space The Kitchen Yoshi Wada, Richard Hayman and Imani Smith recreating Wada’s earliest memories hearing Zen Buddhist ritual chants growing up in Kyoto. meditative modal improvisation for three vocalists, tantric dada minimalism inspired equally by Wada’s participation in the Fluxus movement and drawing on eastern European vocal styling as well, though the tone is distinctly of the Orient. plodding heavy as if set to a doom metal soundtrack yet fragile and majestic in depth. aura hypnosis
