Only starting this year, Kaboko is a studio based music project led by Teddy Hunter on piano, and, documentary film maker, Simon Pax Mcdowell on drums. The idea of Kaboko is to fuse different genres such as jazz and instrumental music. Being drum and piano based means the project is very rhythmical and melodic and allows for layers of other instruments. This is where the project involves other musicians but is still led by Teddy and Simon. Although mainly a studio and rehearsal based project, Kaboko are currently recording but it is a long going experimental project where both Simon and Teddy hope to expand and development on the music that has been written so far. Influences come from the likes of Snarky Puppy and Bill Laurance as well as classical music.
