Kaiju Project

The Kaiju Project is a Japanese inspired jazz group formed by the half-Japanese pianist Aseo Friesacher. The term Kaiju refers to creatures from ancient Japanese mythologies. Their initial idea was to bring old folk songs into a new modern context, but in addition to their compositions, this group has found their very own musical direction: a perfect blend of traditional Japanese music and meditative-creative jazz.
