With a sound and aesthetic that combine Japanese and Chinese musical theater, Asian pop, performance art, anime, and fuzzed-out psychedelia, self-styled “Noh-wave” band Yamantaka//Sonic Titan are an experimental music and performance collective based out of Montreal and Toronto. Multi-instrumentalists Alaska B and Ruby Kato Attwood first came together in 2007 with the idea of fusing their Asian-Canadian heritage into their music.

Yamantaka//Sonic Titan returned with their third album, DIRT, which arrived in 2018. Inspired by Buddhism, the Haudenosaunee Native American confederacy, and anime, the album featured singer Joanna Delos Reyes, guitarist Hiroki Tanaka, and bassist Brandon Lim.
