Tatsuya Nakatani (percussion), originally from Osaka, Japan, invents his own instruments to create an intense, organic sound that defies category or genre. His music is grounded in improvisation, yet it retains the sense of space and beauty found in traditional Japanese folk music.

Edward Wilkerson, Jr. (saxophone) is internationally recognized as one of the great saxophonists to come out of the Chicago music scene. A long-time member of Chicago’s celebrated AACM (Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians), he has toured throughout the United States, Japan, Europe, and the Middle East.
