Formerly "Comicoperando", the band - with a new line-up and arrangements - pay tribute to one of the world's best-loved singers and songwriters in jazz and pop history. They revisit and reinvent Robert Wyatt's repertoire from a wide range of perspectives while remaining rooted in the composer's restlessly inventive and iconoclastic spirit.

Wyattando is an original project created by Akamu.
