The proudly eclectic Japonize Elephants mix and match bluegrass and klezmer, the Balkans and Appalachia.

Vibraphone and glockenspiel are deployed alongside hurdy-gurdy, accordion, surf guitar and “junk percussion.” Some of the music has the eerie whimsy of a score for a film by Marc Caro (City of Lost Children) with its fantastic reordering of everyday reality.
