Bang on a Can plays Ryuichi Sakamoto’s 1996 + Ana Roxanne

Ryuichi Sakamoto “was arguably the best-known and most successful Japanese musician in the world” (Peter Tasker, Nikkei Asia). He won an Oscar for his soundtrack to Bernardo Bertolucci’s “The Last Emperor” and several Golden Globes and Grammy awards and nominations for other films. In 1992, he scored the opening ceremony of the Barcelona Olympics, conducting the orchestra while a billion people watched. Sakamoto’s film scores are renowned for their diversity and sensitivity, and now the Bang on a Call All-Stars realize their own new live arrangements of the album 1996 — which includes an incredible selection of many of Sakamoto’s most well-known tracks. The Bang on a Can All-Stars play Ryuichi Sakamoto is an exploration, a tribute, a celebration.

Bang on a Can All-Stars:
Vicky Chow piano
David Cossin percussion
Arlen Hlusko cello
Kebra Seyoun-Charles bass
Mark Stewart guitar
Ken Thomson clarinet

Ana Roxanne is a New York based musician working at the interzone of electric meditation, dream pop, and ambient songcraft. Her self-titled EP was later reissued by Leaving Records before signing with Kranky for her official full-length debut, 2020’s Because Of A Flower.

Her inspirations span the secular (R&B divas of 1980’s and 90’s) and the spiritual (Catholic choral traditions in which she was raised), synthesized into a uniquely intuitive sonic language, equal parts atmospheric and ancient, healing and hermetic.
