From Ayumi Ishito
Ishito has been an active member of the music community in New York since 2010, following her jazz studies at the Berklee College of Music. In that time, she has immersed herself in an array of genres, performing jazz, blues, gospel, funk, experimental, world music, and so much more. As a result, Ishito has become an increasingly well-rounded musician, a trait that fuels her unique original style.
As a particularly prolific performer and collaborator, Ishito is also a member of thejazz/blues band The Jazz Thieves, and the free-jazz/dome metal band The Eighty Pound Pug. In recent years, she has also performed with an avant jazz trio, Nova Project, which has recorded several studio albums.
