In November, 2001, Mujika Easel started a new project called eisi, as a solo
venture. In January, 2002, Kobori and Morita were added to the lineup and
activity was started by the trio with the help of a guest drummer. In March,
2003, after a number of performances and the discovery of their sound, the
drummer left, and Eisi as they are now began.Eisi creates a highly organic
sound from traditional instruments played in non-traditional ways blended
with subtle electronics and Mujika's haunting voice.
In November 2003, their debut cd Awaawa was released on Noble.
They also participate in the artists group called AnN-shitu that are formed
by painter, novelist, musician, etc.
