Tatsuya Nakatani + Michel Doneda @Sulfur Studios 

FOLKS are still talking about when Tatsuya Nakatani came through town last year, playing a solo set of his percussive soundscapes and set with a small gong orchestra comprised of Savannah locals. While your neighbors won’t be up there to bang a gong this year, Nakatani’s performance is not one to miss for those interested in rhythm, alternative soundmaking, or just a completely one-of-a-kind night out.

On this tour, Nakatani is collaborating with soprano saxophonist Michel Doneda from Toulouse, France. One of the most prominent improvisational musicians in Europe, Doneda met Nakatani in 2002 in Toulouse; the two went on to perform and record with alto saxophonist Jack Wright in 2004. From there, a trio, From Between, was formed.

Their work as a duo has taken Nakatani and Doneda from Poland to Canada to Japan and more; the two have played many festivals together and worked with a variety of renown players, poets, and dancers.

A “Mystery Quartet,” dreamed up by Jeff Zagers, will open the evening.

Tuesday, December 15, doors at 7:30 p.m., show at 8 p.m., all-ages, $13 advance via Eventbrite.com
