Skin & Bones: Keiji Haino in the Pyramid
Date:Thu, May 23rd, 2019
YOUR BRAIN WILL NEVER BE THE SAME. Unique amongst even the most unique, multi instrumentalist musician extraordinaire, the legendary Keiji Haino has been both expanding and destroying humans minds for the past five decades.
Kelowna is extremely fortunate to host him for his only other Western Canadian date (and only 4 shows in Canada total) after not 1 but 2 headlining shows at Victoriaville International festival in Quebec and then a collaborative show with post-metal group Sumac in Vancouver on May 21st (courtesy of Quiet City).
This is a VERY special (truly once in a lifetime!) opportunity to see the great man INSIDE the Summerhill Winery Pyramid. While he is perhaps best known for his work on the guitar, audiences in Kelowna will be treated to a special 'one off' performance of Mr. Haino playing a variety of percussive instruments, with likely a few surprises as well! From his solo work, to renowned groups such as Fushitsusha, to his countless collaborations with the likes of Peter Brotzmann and Jim O'Rourke, the constant factor in all his music is the making of scorchingly BEAUTIFUL and otherworldly sound.
Something exceptional enough to be remembered forever, anyone with even a passing interest in the art of creating should be present.
Doors open at 730pm and concert will begin at 8pm prompt.
