Yamantaka // Sonic Titan, Disappearing People, and Kingdom of Not at Bottom of the Hill, April 10, 2018


Hailing from Montreal, the Canadian music collective Yamantaka // Sonic Titan brought their unique mixture of indigenous North American and classic Japanese music to San Francisco’s Bottom of the Hill this past Tuesday, April 10th. Touring in support of their latest album, ‘Dirt’, the “Noh-Wave” group paired conventional instruments such as synthesizers and guitars with hand cymbals, and hand drums. Colorfully dressed, the group wore traditional Japanese attire and kabuki-inspired facepaint while dishing out energetic and emotional tracks featuring throat singing and electronic production.
