BEHIND THE SCENES
AKA Tora Brava. From the packed clubs of the New York City underground music scene with her band Xtatika, to performing on stages all over the world, Tora is an accomplished singer, songwriter and musician who has worked with artists including Sean Lennon, John Zorn and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. She has produced and performed on seven albums of original works influenced by rock, pop, dance, experimental and ritual Korean music for a genre-busting sound. After 9 years of school choir, Tora trained in p'ansori, a traditional style of Korean opera, and brought her voice to Xtatika's first album TONGUE BATH [Tzadik]. The album caught the world's attention with its unconventional sound, driven by ritual Korean percussion and boldly unique vocals. Every album since then also boasts its own trademark sound, ranging from electro-pop, classic indie, to bootie-shaking industrial dance rock. Check out Soundcloud for a sample of tunes.
