Makyo is known for its unique tribal dub sound…… fusing Indian and middle-eastern instruments and percussion with live electronics and mystical oriental dance.Makyo has been a studio based project since the 90s but “Purnima” Makyo”s long-awaited sixth album marks the debut recording of Makyo as a live band.The band is centered around producer dj and remixer Gio Makyo who is known for his ethno ambient and blissed out dub productions working on mixes and remixes with such artists as Bill Laswell Natacha Atlas Cheb-i-Sabbah Omar Faruk Tekbilek Kaya Project and Solace.Gio has defined his sound over the course of 5 albums and live he brings a hands on real-time approach to electronic sequencing and sampling while dub mixing all the acoustic instruments as well. Jimi Miyashita a top student of Indian maestro Shivkumar Sharma performs on the 72 stringed santoor while multi-instrumentalist Madoka contributes on electric saz oud Afghani rubab and guitar. Percussionist Junzo Tateiwa known for his work with Japanese progrock band Ghost plays Indian tabla darbukka and daf. Finally mystical bellydancer Hayati brings her flowing and expressive “ambient oriental” STYLE: to the front of the stage.”Purnima” was started shortly before the tsunami hit Japan last Spring and has taken a year to complete in the face of nuclear meltdown evacuation etc. The album documents several of the pieces Makyo has been performing and perfecting live over the past 2 years and while recorded in Studio 11-11 for good recording quality almost everything on the album was performed in one take. We allowed ourselves a few overdubs and such but for the most part this is free improvised flowing electronic-acoustic fusion as only Makyo can do it.
