Known as one of the greatest guitar innovators of our time, Kaki King presents MODERN YESTERDAYS, a refinement of her now signature guitar-projection mapping performance. With technicolor imagination, technical wizardry, and carefully choreographed guitar and drum playing, “she’ll do the unexpected, every time” (Digital Trends). Bridging what fans have come to love about Kaki King’s multimedia performances, alongside a very new approach to storytelling, MODERN YESTERDAYS is set to tour worldwide in 2022.

The album Modern Yesterdays (released in late 2020 on Cantaloupe Music) derives broadly from the music composed for Data Not Found (DNF), Kaki King’s largest-scale and most theatrical performance piece yet. With the post-pandemic performance world ever-evolving, Kaki King set out to create an analog to Data Not Found, which can now be found in MODERN YESTERDAYS: an interlocking puzzle piece nimble enough to tour the world in 2021, and beyond.
