The funky, whimsically irreverent Japanese expats Miho Hatori (vocals, drum pad) and Yuka Honda (keyboard, sampler) return to Japan Society’s stage this time as Cibo Matto! Since officially reuniting earlier this year, these NY downtown darlings are back and better than ever, with their charming lyrics often referencing food and a dizzying array of sounds influenced by everything from hip-hop, jazz and rock to African and Brazilian beats. Straight from Tokyo, this evening also features the international debut of the silky-voiced keyboardist/singer-songwriter Yu Sakai (Visit Yu Sakai's facebook page). With R&B beats and jazz-fused j-pop melodies, Sakai’s music is an inventive blend of self-mixed instrumentation and multi-layered vocals. Sakai became an overnight sensation in Japan, breaking radio charts after releasing his first single in 2009 and winning iTunes’ 2010 Best J-Pop Album of the year award with his debut album. Downtown New York collides with modish Shibuya in this one-night-only J-music mash-up.

Cash bar opens at 7 pm.
