I´m excited to return to Japan and announce Mari Kalkun JAPAN TOUR 2016 with 6 concerts in 4 cities – Kagoshima, Nara, Kyoto and Tokyo! I will be playing mostly solo concerts, except for Tokyo where we play as a duo with Maija Kauhanen presenting the record material of “Tii ilo” released and organized by Japanese label Afterhours.
