This is the most minimum A Cappella Unit in the world.
“Breath-MaL beats a heartbeat of music.
Voice-Daisuke Ito draws a scenery of the sound.
We don't need any instruments.
We just need their body and soul.
Yes,we are the Piece of Cake!
Are you ready?”
我們是一塊蛋糕，the Piece of Cake！
Ito Daisuke, who is leading young generation of the Japanese Jazz world as a singer, Mal, who built the foundation of making the part of Voice percussion be recognized in Japan, they first met and formed a unit in 2012. They are the “world smallest a cappella unit” and perform without any musical instruments but with only their microphones. They dedicate all of their instruments, the “voice” and the “breath”, which belong to anyone, to the stage performance , and the music from their only two microphones amazingly expand far beyond. It has been only just one year since they formed the duo, they are constantly on the tour nationwide, and in spring 2013, they planned a concert tour visiting all 47 prefectures in Japan. The tickets for the massive 80-day tour sold out throughout the nation. It doesn’t bother them at all with the music genre boundaries such as Jazz, Pops, Classic and Original from the very beginning and this is so incredibly unfettered “Wind Ensemble “ duo.
