Japanese folk singer-songwriter Ichiko Aoba presents material from her seventh critically acclaimed album, Windswept Adan, alongside one of the UK’s leading chamber orchestras: 12 Ensemble.

This will be an exclusive ensemble show on Ichiko Aoba’s tour and it will be her first performance with players from outside of Japan.

Windswept Adan, co-written and produced by Taro Umebayashi, is a concept album of chamber music and contemporary orchestral works, which is influenced by jazz, folk, and classical music. It is an album that tells a story and is a piece of fantasy science fiction set to music – a sonic voyage through the East China Sea.

A rising star in Japan, Ichiko has soundtracked several stage productions and video games and her music has been inspired by Disney music and Studio Ghibli, both of which she listened to growing up. 2020’s Windswept Adan was a gamechanger for the artist, triggering her snowballing popularity amongst music fans around the world.

Support will come from electronic music artist Wayne Phoenix.

The end time for this concert will be added here closer to the performance date.
