Makigami Koichi is the leader of one of Japan's longest running underground bands, Hikashu, which has evolved from an electronic pop band to embrace world music, improvisation, noise and other styles. Makigami has recorded two previous albums on his own, including the star-studded, Zorn-produced Koroshi No Blues, a much sought-after import on Toshiba-EMI Japan. He has performed with Derek Bailey and Yamatsuka Eye, and is also the organizer of the monthly Tokyo performance of John Zorn's improvisational game piece, Cobra.

An accomplished film and stage actor, Makigami is an incredible vocalist and performer, employing creative and versatile techniques blending Tuuvan throat-singing (which he studied in Mongolia) and Japanese traditions with rock and avant garde. Kuchinoha, his first album for solo voice, contains nine improvisations of vocal acrobatics. No effects, no overdubs, no edits - it's creative, humorous and utterly delightful.
