Ichiko Aoba builds warm, haunting gardens of song from her guitar, her voice, and her dreams.
Ichiko Aoba Supporting 3

Ichiko Aoba often excavates her unconscious or catches herself daydreaming. Then she shakes off the dream dust to reveal the gorgeous, delicate sound shining through. Born outside Toyoko and raised in Kyoto, Aoba was taught remotely by her mentor Anmi Yamada to master classical guitar. She also plays the piano, clarinet, accordion and flute on music that's released on her own label.

They’re fragile-yet-powerful songs, that drift like cirrus clouds and captivate like fables. She'll plying inviting in for an intimite show upstairs at The Forum.
