Yuko Ikoma is an accordion player from acoustic-instrumental duo Mama!milk. She also performs as a solo artist, her debut album Esquisse was relased this Spring (on Wind Bell). Esquisse is the music built of very gentle and mysterious melodies. It´s toy piano, music box, casiotone, recorders... It´s lovely, fresh and pure. Fragile music for fragile hearts.

Mama!milk´s music has been described as Japanese New Exotica or Cinema for Ears. I can add incredibly charming. It´s hard to stop listening to, it´s the right music to open your mind. Mama!milk´s live performances are just they two - Kosuke Shimizu on contrabass and Yuko Ikoma on accordion, the air around, the stage and their audience. When working on recordings, they collaborate with guest musicians. And they are invited as guests by others... In addition they are also producing music for theaters and films... I highly recommend.
