About this image

Hikashu, one of the leading Japanese groups, has enthralled Vilnius Jazz audience with its exuberant Japanese-flavoured performance of indescribable genre in 2012 and 2015. The group has kept intriguing the world with its spontaneous experiments and out-of-format improvisations for almost four decades. Guitarist, composer and recording produced Mita Freeman is the other front man of Hikashu, along with Makigami Koichi. Past summer together with his groups he has flamboyantly celebrated his 60th anniversary in Tokyo. His first group, called Lu Inch, was formed in 1977 and continues to this day featuring guitarist and vocalist Iwah, bassist Sakaide Masami and drummer Sensui Toshiro.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
