Wharf Chambers is excited to be bringing noise-rock trio Avalanche Kaito to Leeds

Avalanche Kaito

“Urban griot and multi-instrumentalist Kaito Winse (vocals, tama, peul flutes, mouth bow) fortuitously collided with Brussels noise punk musicians Benjamin Chaval (drums, electronics) and Nico Gitto (guitar). Through a twisting sequence of events, the trio eventually met and began developing the soundworld of ancestral proverbs and dataist inspired technology. The Wire says they play “freaked, juddering electronic punk”. Since their debut concert in July 2021, the band has been touring Europe intensively, while releasing an EP in January as a preview of their first album released in June, both of which were released on Glitterbeat. After their highly acclaimed performances in festivals and clubs, the band is preparing to cross the Atlantic, invited by FME in Quebec in September 2022.        

The trio mostly play Kaito’s compositions, each making sure to write their part very freely. At the end all compositions are collective. The griot handles proverbs. These are the pillars of wisdom. He can both murmur and harangue, while his intense flute solos come straight from a free jazz he never knew. Nico brings this very rare quality of being both able to ensure the groove of a very uncommon rhythmic baritone guitar and develop sophisticated sound experiences. Benjamin plays his low-fi drums with two cut pieces of brush handle. Also he provides an important Pure Data electronic part partially controlled by triggers, a real fourth wheel to the coach. ”

Mia La Metta and Territorial Gobbing teamup to make spontaneous noisy/dancey slosh and slop. Varispeed tape gurgles over medival drum samples and garbled vocals all for the sake of the groove and the shuffle etc
