MINAMO

Carla Kihlstedt – Violin
Satoko Fujii – Piano

gBoth musicians have great technical prowess, but their collaboration is more about interactions and creative responses than showing offc this music rarely sits still and never falls into clich...the pieces go to unexpected and often compelling places. Take a chance and you might be seduced.h \ Richard Kamins, Hartford Courant

Saxophonist-composer Larry Ochs first brought Carla and Satoko together at the ROVA saxophone quartet 25th anniversary concert in 2002. The result was a meeting of musical minds.  Both have classical backgrounds, but each enjoys crossing borders into jazz, rock, and world music, too. Their improvisations sound like dynamic compositions. Minamo is the Japanese word for gthe surface of water,h which both reflects many things and covers great depths. A good description of the music!

They have released two CDs, Minamo(2007) and Kuroi Kawa~Black River(2009).
