Yuka C Honda is a musician, producer, composer, and performer. Born in Tokyo, Honda spent part her childhood in Dusseldorf, Germany and in a small village in Denmark. She feels that living in different countries and learning different languages at such a young age had a major influence on her music, in
which her main interest is the integration of elements that may initially seem foreign. As such, her work naturally defies the concepts of genres and borders.
Currently residing in New York City, Honda is best known for the band Cibo Matto, which she co-founded with Miho Hatori in 1994 and in which she created a unique sound by triggering samples live. Honda has released three solo albums and has produced recordings by Sean Lennon, Martha Wainwright, Yoko Ono, and Cibo Matto.
She has recorded and performed with a wide range of musicians, including Yoko Ono, Esperanza Spalding, Bernie Worrell, Marc Ribot, Laurie Anderson, Sean Lennon, YoshimiO (of The Boredoms), Kimbra, Thomas Bartlett, Trixie Whitley, and Nels Cline, among others.
