La Veuve Moustachue - Kishino Yuichi is an original singer gifted with a delicate voice and a unique sense of stage theatrics. Beneath the black veil, he transforms into the moustached widow, enjoying her holidays in a realm of cabaret chansons, easy-retro orchestrations and highly expressive choreographic elements. In the company of pianist Gary Ashiya & video artist ALi, the widow lands in an interactive stage set of movies, opening a dialogue with them. Kishino is an overactive character of the Tokyo music scene, DJ, runs the Out One Disc label and works as a university professor at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music specialised in sound design of cinema.

SMOKE, her second album, was released in 1996 on John Zorn's Tzadik Records. Jon currently lives in Tokyo and tours across Japan. Aside from her musical indevers, she is also known as a Tarot fortune teller and Zenith™healer.
