KIHNOUA is a term borrowed from ancient Greek that might have meant “the difference”; or for us now: “the unity of opposites”. This is a San Francisco based ensemble formed by Larry Ochs in 2007 to explore new ideas and directions – on the one hand, oral traditions, and on the other hand, new-jazz spontaneity.
A long-time fan of traditional Korean p’ansori folk-singing and of Korean sinawi improvisation, it is with great anticipation that Larry Ochs presents music that intermingles the very new thoughts, sounds and structures of jazz (or perhaps better phrased as “Western improvised music”) with influences from the ancient sounds of Korea and the folk-music / blues influenced music of Asia, Africa and the USA.
