the MIMIKOTO project is called ‚project‘ in contrast to ‚band‘, since a band includes certain people while excluding others.

Like it is usual in Jazz sessions, the group of people participating the session is not fixed, and it is an important point of the organic structure of a session, that it is not stable but changes continously. Every musician brings new influences, new ideas, new cultural background and brings new ways of interaction with the other musicians who are participating.

Facing the limitations of a fixed crew and set up, Fabio Kumori founded the MIMIKOTO project in 2019, after having worked as the MIMIKOTO duo, trio and quartett for a certain time before.
