Hello and welcome to IKITAN’s official website. We’re a heavy post-rock band from Genoa, Italy.
A jam session-driven instrumental power trio with stoner and progressive influences, IKITAN makes instrumental music that has been compared to the likes of Tool, Yawning Man, Pelican, Russian Circles and My Sleeping Karma. Join our journey to find out.
Having gained world-wide fame (?) for debuting with an EP containing one instrumental song of the duration of 20 minutes and 20 seconds, aptly titled “Twenty-Twenty”, and released as a limited-edition digipack (200 copies only) on 20th November 2020, IKITAN is proud to present its first live video, “Twenty-Twenty Live at Forte Geremia”.
The band’s first concert was shot on top of an old military fort on a sunny ‘n’ windy Sunday 7th March 2021 and it represents the band’s tribute to generator parties, desert rock and Yawning Man.
Luca Nash Nasciuti: guitar
Frik Et: bass
Enrico Meloni: drums and cowbell
IKITAN: the alleged God of the Sound of the Stones.
