Formed in 1998 by Yoshida Tatsuya, Japan’s KOREKYOJINN (alternately spelled Korekyojin) is a progressive-jazz-rock band determined to redefine the polyrhythmic ensemble. The band’s name translates to “This Giant”, a sly pun inspired by THIS HEAT and GENTLE GIANT, two band’s the group draws inspiration from. In Japanese the word “kore” translates as “this”, while “kyojinn” is “giant”. While the style of KOREKYOJINN will be recognizable to fans of Yoshida Tatsuya’s other acts, the band has carved out a sound all its own. The trio dance on razors, are sharp as a tack – and their overwhelming ability jettisons them into the outer limits – where progressive rock and contemporary jazz collide into a breathtaking, futuristic, hard rock funk.

KOREKYOJINN is an All-Star ensemble, comprised of the greatest talent Tokyo’s fervent Avant/Prog rock scene has to offer:
Yoshida Tatsuya has proven himself a major force many times over in Japan’s contemporary music scene. He is the founder of RUINS and KOENJIHYAKKEI, a member of ZENI GEVA, Yoshida has performed with ACID MOTHERS GONG, SAMLA MAMAS MANNA, John Zorn’s PAIN KILLER. and has been cited by John Zorn as “the indisputable master drummer of the Japanese underground”. In KOREKYOJINN, Kido Natsuki is leader and guitarist of the phenomenal cult prog rock band BONDAGE FRUIT. His “progressive-tango band” SALLE GAVEAU performed at the “Rock in Opposition” Festival in 2007, shocking audiences across Europe. GROUND ZERO’s legendary bassist Nasuno Mitsuru to demonstrate the limitless potential of the “power trio”.
