Norwegian-born singer Kate Havnevik will be performing in Okinawa soon along with British producer, composer and musician Guy Sigsworth. The pair will tour China later this month and then play a concert in Taipei, Taiwan. The Okinawa date has been added at the end of the tour and will take place on Monday 5th October at Naha’s Sakurazaka Theatre Hall B under the title ‘Music from the World, Vol.3’. The show starts at 19:00 and is their only date in Japan.

Kate Havnevik’s critically acclaimed debut album Melankton was released in 2006 and earlier this year she made the album &i. Her music has been featured in TV shows such as ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and she has recently been included in a list of the ‘Top 50 Women of Indie Music’. Accompanying her on the tour is Guy Sigsworth whose long list of credits includes work with Bjork, Madonna and Talvin Singh. He was also a member of the band Frou Frou together with Imogen Heap.

Opening guests will be the trio MKR Project whose singer and sanshin player Mutsumi Aragaki is equally at home with traditional Okinawan songs and with her own compositions which show influences from jazz and African music. It promises to be a varied and exciting evening.
