日本の音楽 Week 8: ROVO

It's that time again! This week, I'd like to introduce to you an unusual band known as ROVO, which is best described as an instrumental psychedelic jazz/chillout band with an almost middle-eastern flavor - something like the bastard child of Shpongle and The Boredoms.

In fact, Seiichi Yamamoto of The Boredoms is one of the band's founders, so the influence ain't exactly a coincidence. ROVO features a slew of talented musicians, often combining the skillful blend of guitar, bass, synth, multiple percussion and the band's distinctive electric violin in many of their songs for nothing short of mindblowing results.
