KAO=S will return to Japan for concert in Tokyo on April 15, performing with the futuristic musical instrument “Kagura”. Kagura transforms motion to sound with no physical contact, and it can recognize movements and gestures using a camera.

KAO=S was formed in Tokyo, in April 2011. Out of the turmoil that followed the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, the band created a new style of Japanese art to bring to the world, which it termed KAO=S (“chaos”). KAO=S’s sound is a blend of vocals and acoustic guitar, overlaid with traditional Japanese instruments such as the three-string Tsugaru shamisen, using a full range of effects, complemented by Kaori’s spellbindingly powerful sword dance.
