Kotorino has one of the most unique and unusual sounds of any band, ever. Even in a music scene saturated with “chamber-pop” bands and odd instrumentation, Kotorino stands out with its use of all variety of winds, strings, and other musical gadgetry. The music itself is omnivorous in its source material, quite pretty, and downright haunting.
Some words from the band:
We love the West Coast! Besides the majestic beauty of the nature, and access to some of the best food imaginable, the people we on our last trip was amazing.
We were well taken care of by the warm and inviting people we came in contact with, we even gained a tuba player / pastry chef in San Francisco!
Kotorino is excited to share our own take on the music swirling around New York, from tilted tangos to banjo dub, latin waltzes to gypsy carnival hayrides, urban mambo to Satie jazz. Most importantly Kotorino is looking to connect we people on a personal, emotional and musical level. There is no better way to make those connections than traveling, sharing food, story and song.
