Kojoe X Aaron Choulai explore the boundaries of hip hop and jazz in a new collaboration with an impressive line-up of Melbourne musicians on the cutting edge of the local underground and mainstream music scene.

Celebrated jazz pianist and beat maker Aaron Choulai, who grew up in Australia, made Tokyo his home in 2008. It was there that one of his most exciting collaborations came together when he crossed paths with Kojoe.

Koichiro “Kojoe” Sakata is a Japan born, Queens NYC bred artist who bears lyrical fluency in both Japanese and English. Performing Hip Hop that authentically reflects his life story, Japanese heritage and Black culture experiences is what drives the artistic expression and cultural connection Kojoe aims to make through his music.

Together, these fresh and innovative artists refuse to stop changing the sound of contemporary hip hop by incorporating elements of jazz and experimental beats.
