Biography:
By Emily David Translated by Angel Pu
Taiwanfun.com
"It's rare to meet someone and have an instant connection, but that's exactly what happened with the unlikely musical pairing of T-Bone & Yasu, the performing duo comprised of Canadian musician and radio host Terry Engel and Japanese producer and percussionist Yasuhiro Toda.
The two met four years ago at a gathering of musicians, during an exhibition performance of Yasu and his Cajon (a Cajon is a box-shaped percussion instrument originating in Peru). They met, they jammed, they clicked – and they've been performing together ever since… Heavily influenced by progressive music (T-Bone) and world music (Yasu), they present a repertoire of technical and complicated songs that are never performed the same way twice. Their shows evolve on stage and are rarely rehearsed; they rely on their "onstage signals" to lead each other into certain sections, or to clue each other in on when the time signature or tempo will change."
