“Koi Fish” is a musical group combining performance, sound, and live improvisation based on self-invented structures. The show includes live music (viola, drums, piano, Persian flute, and singing) with movement, drawing, and performance motifs. The essence of our project is to experience and explore sound. Koi Fish aspire to take in the sounds from the immediate environment that surrounds us and let them manifest into something new through us.
Fueled by our extensive backgrounds, these improvisational actions allow the band to research sound uninhibited.
Koi Fish was founded by Chihiro Tazuro and Elik Harpaz in 2018.
They performed at several festivals, such as Yellow Submarine Jerusalem, Koom Koom
Festival Jerusalem, Fight Festival Israel, Mazkeka Jerusalem, Besarabia Jerusalem, and Gallery Tiyul Layla.
In 2020 Koi Fish has been selected by COCA Project.
