Attending a performance of Joasihno, a duo composed of Cico Beck (who has especially been a member of The Notwist) and Nico Serig, is firstly discovering an astonishing instrumentarium, mixing analog synthesizers and traditional percussions, sound sculptures and robotic musicians. Then, emerging from this varied assembly, it is a delight to listen to a collection of models whose genealogy could spread from Moondog to Four Tet, by way of the American minimalism and the krautrock. Counting rhymes give birth to sweet dreams filled with colorful toys, rockets and faraway islands.
For Maintenant, Joasihno will present two performances: a concert at the Protestant Church, and a smaller version of their set-up -Joasihno Mobile Disko- working on a drum kit and thus fully portable and mobile.
