Hiroi, Band of guitar player Michiru Ripplinger, release their Album “Return of the Koi” on Listen Closely.
Hiroi, is Japanese, to which guitarist Michiru Ripplinger has a strong connection by his mother, means “wide” and describes the mood that is conveyed by his compositions.
Stylistically, apart from modern jazz, this wideness is expressed through the occasional trip to the singer / songwriter genre, and rock elements that can be found in the music of this formation. Closed-mindedness is not for them.
Hiroi sees itself not as a band with a lead singer, but rather as five equal musicians. They alway focus to do justice to the meaning of their band.
They will celebrate the Release with a concert on 30.4. at the hoerthoert-Festival.
