World jazz inspired duo AfuriKo was born out of an encounter in Paris in 2010 of the Japanese percussionist Akiko Horii and Ango-French pianist and composer Jim Funnell. Akiko graduated from CalArts (the famous arts school in Los Angeles founded by Walt Disney), which she attended on a scholarship, while Jim earned a Bachelor of Music degree from Berklee College of Music, the prestigious Bostonian jazz institution from which he was awarded the coveted Full Tuition Scholarship.
For AfuriKo, their new album, Style, represents a true shamanic journey, the quest for a unified voice, one that integrates jazz harmonies, the freedom of improvisation, and spellbinding West African grooves…and we look forward to welcoming them back to Cardiff.
