Referring to yourself as an "inter-media collective that uses visual art and music to explore its members' diasporic cultural experiences as Asian-Canadians and members of First Nations" is liable to lose as many listeners as it makes. Better to stick with the promise of "homemade and hand-wired versions of Chinese and Japanese traditional instruments" to lure folks in. And even then, the titanic psychedlic-meets-Noh-theater music is so much more than that, almost overwhelmingly so. Imagine If Björk were metal enough to have a burger named after her at Kuma's and you're close.
