Enter a world of queer future magic where dapper dad fashion is the dress code and crowns are optional (though highly encouraged).
Rice Kings are an experimental electronic jazz group featuring Asian American musicians playing all original music that celebrates minorities of gender, race, and sexuality.
Keys extraordinaire Erika Oba and EWI commander Eli Maliwan weave through soundscapes of digital mayhem that is danceable yet harmonically progressive covering important subjects such as equality and less important though arguably entertaining subjects such as "The Centaur of Attention" and certain condescending robots.
