About HOAHIO | A founding member of the legendary band After Dinner, Haco is one of the most versatile vocalists in the Japanese indies scene. Her newest project, Hoahio, finds her collaborating with two of the most exciting young musicians in Tokyo: koto virtuoso Yagi Michiyo, whose debut solo recording Shizuku was released in 1999 on Tzadik, and Sachiko M, whose work with Otomo Yoshihide has earned her international acclaim. In the tradition of the great Japanese girl groups Saboten, Shonen Knife, Fukuko and Papaya Paranoia, this new trio recording is simultaneously charming, mysterious and delightful. | (from tzadik records website)
