Jessika Kenney
& Eyvind Kang (US)

The music of the duo formed by singer Jessika Kenney and violinist/violist Eyvind Kang reconfigures Persian, Indonesian and Indian classical traditions through the achievements of Western contemporary composition and improvisation. Together they have produced four disarmingly beautiful albums where the boundaries between traditional Eastern, Asian, minimalist and experimental music have been overturned for an extraordinarily elegant result. A collaborator with Wolves in the Throne Room, Avey Tare (Animal Collective) and Annea Lockwood, Jessika Kenney is also a renowned performer of the vocal works of John Cage, Lou Harrison, Morton Feldman and Alvin Lucier. Eyvind Kang is a sought-after and prolific multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger, member of Secret Chiefs 3 and collaborator with Lou Reed, Black Mountain, Sunn O))), Animal Collective, Laurie Anderson, Mr. Bungle and Bill Frisell.
