Currently working up his chops in the Austin-based band Afrofreque; Fumi-hito is now stretching out in his lone efforts into spaces of limitless melodic and rhythmic structures, setting an atmosphere of blissful proportions with a sophisticated style that’s cinematic in structure, but funky in sound. With Fumi-hito, there’s never a dull moment! His style can be seen as the outcome of a hypothetical meeting between the likes of Lalo Schifrin, DJ Logic, and Yellow Magic Orchestra. And this multi-instrumentalist offers everything that one would expect of a virtuous musical and philosophical visionary heavily influenced by hip-hop, jazz, brazilia, soul, and Japanese-folk music. Think of it as experimental genre-blending mood-music which consistently relays some story and/ or message within its being.
Needless to say, the world is in for years, decades, and maybe even centuries of mind-blowing and soul-thumping grooves! This artist has chosen to take “the road less traveled” -- to create sonic timelessness in the 21st century. Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, welcome the magnificent Fumi-hito! http://www.myspace.com/fumi-hito http://fumihito.bandcamp.com/album/this-goes Read more on Last.fm.
