BRANDON — The improvisatory and “conversational” Yabuno Ettun Project (YEP) performs at Brandon Music on Aug., 2 at 7:30 p.m.

YEP is a highly creative collaboration between Japanese pianist Haruka Yabuno and Israeli bassist Ehud Ettun. The duo describes their music as “on the line between classical and jazz with a mixture of Baroque esthetics and contemporary jazz.”

Each one an imaginative composer, Ettun and Yabuno have created a unique interaction on stage. Their music is versatile and their creativity is on another level. “The beauty is that we came together through music way before we could find a common verbal language,” explains Yabuno.

Their repertoire is derived from a wide spectrum of sources and influences, which may explain why each concert is a unique experience. Ettun explains that “even though we came from different backgrounds, perhaps musically, indeed culturally, we found many similarities between Japan and Israel, let alone between us. Exploring without asking permission, without fear is what rewards us as musicians and listeners.”

Concert tickets are $15. Venue is BYOB. Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Rd., Brandon.
