You will be sucked into a dynamic improvisation by three totally different players. There exists an unbounded mutual trust between them: Dong-won Kim living in Korea, Jeff Cairns in Japan and Jeff Bird in Canada. Korean folk and shamanic traditions, the ancient music of the Japanese Shakuhachi, and western genres of celtic, blues, jazz and rock. Their many and varied years of musical experiences are mixed uncompromisingly to ensure that no two performances of Trio CaBiKi will ever be the same.
Jeff Cairns is primarily a wind instrumentalist with an affinity for traditional wind instruments. Playing the Great Scottish bagpipes competitively at an early age ushered Jeff into an era of self-expression on the transverse flute and soprano saxophone. Woodshedding with fledgling fusion band Vector in Toronto, Canada led Cairns to expand his musical vista which saw a giant step in moving to Kumamoto, Japan where he took up the study and mastery of the shakuhachi under Master Tsurugi Kyomudo III. As a working teacher of the shakuhachi now, he is fully immersed in the field of improvisation as a communicative/creative well and continues to collaborate with musicians world-wide.
