Yumi Zouma Tour Diary
Convinced they would always be a long-distance band creating music via the internet, the members of Yumi Zouma were surprised to find themselves in so much demand this year that they needed to tour. Scattered between Paris, New York and their hometown of Christchurch, touring and playing live was a difficult prospect, especially if they were to keep various band members' careers and studies afloat. We had Yumi Zouma's Josh Burgess bring us along on the European leg of the band's world tour.
