Noda Tsutomu, editor of the magazine Ele-king, was kind enough to cover our event and write a thoughtful review of the evening. If you read Japanese here is the full article:
In April, we performed at Yogenji Temple along side Grouper, En, and Ichiko Aoba.
The Tokyo shows were both sold out and were a huge success and a great way for Grouper and En to kick off their Japan tour.
After the main performances, we shared food and drink, and those lucky enough to stick around were treated to an hour long improvisation between Grouper, En, Ichiko Aoba and ILLUHA.

It’s been a while since our last entry.
Illuha has been busy with life, working on new material in the studio, organizing and playing shows and exciting new plans for the coming year.
This year in January we embarked on a mini-Japan tour with Celer (Will Long), Asuna, Taishi Kamiya and Yusuke Date.
Here are some long overdue images from the tour through northern Japan and snow country. Enjoy!
