This was a very special night for me. This tour we did in 2022 was great and it is always a joy to play with my family. We played different repertoire than I usually play with my Dub Ainu Band but always with the traditional rhythm structure from the tonkori. The tonkori is always behind the song - it is the foundation for the music. The feeling we got from the crowd was really warm - they liked our "family business". OKI

Live at Café Oto is a journey into Ainu music as ancient vocal chants move into intense mouth-harp acapellas as meditative solo tonkori pieces morph into psychedelic dub-heavy work-outs.

The album follows the critical acclaim for Tonkori in the Moonlight, Mais Um’s 2022 compilation of OKI’s early work that was chosen as one of the best folk albums of 2022 by The Guardian.

Live at Café Oto features mostly unheard repertoire from OKI and family, recorded in Mais Um's favourite venue in London on a sold out night as part of a captivating European tour - when we heard the recording we knew we had to release it.
