Profile

KARI BAND was originally formed by three session musicians who are known very well internationally for the backing band to a girls'.group.

Their first mini album was released in the summer of 2017.
In January 2018 its guitarist Mikio Fujioka suddenly passed away.
A year later the remaining members, BOH on bass and Yuya Maeta on drums, restarted the project and drafted in friends and students of Mikio Fujioka to be guests on the new record titled as "2 maime" in 2020.

On March 2020, the band released a live recording album with jazz, funk, and fusion artists.
