Denki Udon is a trio composed of Norberto Lobo, Giovanni Di Domenico and Tatsuhisa Yamamoto.
Norberto’s case is that of the artist-illusionist that suggests a ground zero for tradition, conjuring several ghosts while leaving them at his door step. It appears that he’s single-handedly changing the relationship between Portuguese music and the guitar. His playing doesn't get insular nor does he try to hide his many influences - yet you feel like you’ve been exorcized just by listening.
Giovanni Di Domenico was born in Rome and since his birth has been traveling and playing music.
This brought him to perform all over the world in very different contextes and musical genres, from modern jazz to free improvisation and experimental pop, collaborating with very many different musicians. Among them are: Arve Henriksen, Akira Sakata, Jim O'Rourke, Fred Lomberg-Holm, Tatsuya Nakamura, Tatsuhisa Yamamoto, Alexandra Grimal, Joao Lobo, Toshimaru Nakamura, just to name few.
He has released many albums under his name and in collaborations with others.
Born on Oct 25, 1982, in Yamaguchi, Japan. Tatsuhisa is a pure acoustic drummer who plays primarily improvised music.
He has also collaborated with artists such as Otomo Yoshihide, Jim O'Rourke, Sachiko M, Seiichi Yamamoto (ex Boredoms), Keiji Haino, Makoto Kawabata(AcidMotherTemple)…
