To Do List Daily: ICHI – Sat 23 Jan

Make way for the bizzarro one man band we’ve all been waiting for.

The delightful oddball ICHI takes the one man band into the next dimension with his handmade musical instrument invention. Critics love his ancient, ritualistic feel made with DIY instruments including: Stilt-bass, Kalilaphone, Balloon-pipes, Hatbox-pedal-drum, Tapumpet, Percussion-shoes & Hat-trick-hat. All made from steel-drums, ping-pong balls, toys & everyday objects all in the space of one short set.  ‘It’s fun, it’s danceable, it’s exciting.’

Here’s what some top musical gurus had to say about ICHI:

‘What on earth is this?! It’s brilliant!’ STEVE LAMACQ
‘Hilarious & bonkers & brilliant!’ LAUREN LAVERNE
