Le Guess Who? is proud to welcome both artists and visitors of many different nationalities to Utrecht each year. In collaboration with SPEAK, we started a new video series in which Utrechters with foreign roots introduce an artist on the Le Guess Who? 2021 line-up from their country.

SPEAK connects locals, newcomers and migrants in the city of Utrecht, by organizing language courses and other cultural events. In this video, Risa Arai introduces Japanese composer and percussionist Midori Takada, who is a true luminary in the world of ambient and experimental music.

"The specific sound, maybe the percussion, is similar to Japanese traditional music, but it can also be similar to other kinds of ethnic music. It is very soothing and mysterious at the same time."

Midori Takada will perform at Le Guess Who? 2021, as well as a.o. Ensemble Klang, claire rousay, Ana Roxanne, Lucrecia Dalt, Lori Goldston, Lucinda Chua, and many more.
