The Incomparable Kishi Bashi To Play Durham
Kishi Bashi's musicianship is legendary. Best known for his collaborations with modern artists such as Regina Spektor, Sondre Lerche, and of Montreal, the virtuoso violinist has become an accomplished solo performer, too. He'll appear at the Carolina Theatre of Durham on Tuesday, Nov. 18.
In 2012, Kishi Bashi released his first full-length album, 151a, which garnered critical acclaim from Spin, Stereogum, Paste, and lead to his being named NPR's "Best New Artist Of The Year."
Kishi Bashi’s second album, Lighght (pictured below), was released earlier this year and charted at No. 52 on Billboard Hot 200 chart. The eclectic sounds, hypnotic rhythms and stirring string parts imbue the recording with a musical richness in line with the violin master's impressive talent.
Performed live inside the spectacular sonic setting of the Carolina Theatre's Fletcher Hall, Kishi Bashi's music will likely showcase even greater nuance and warmth.
