Yukijurushi is a Bossa Nova band exploring the subtly hypnotic rhythms and haunting melodies of modern Brazilian folk forms. An instrumental/vocal trio, the band plays standard Bossa Nova, jazz standards and original songs. Yukijurushi played two sold out shows at NYC’s Blue Note in January 2006!
The unique cultural universe of Yukijurushi is comprised of two Japanese plus one native Californian. Guitarist Eiji Obata is well known in the New York jazz scene, frequently performing in the city's jazz clubs, restaurants and underground (as part of the MTA's Music Under New York - aka MUNY - program). Bassist Todd Nicholson is omnipresent in the Vision hardjazz scene. Percussionist/Vocalist Tatsuya Nakatani, is most notable for his drumhead manipulations, improvisations and avant garde music.
