Did Cibo Matto break up?
Nobody would rather sugar coat this more than me, but the word from the band is that Cibo Matto had a break up. A friendly departure into each of their own solo projects. Each person had their own ideas to work out and keeping the whole Cibo Matto band thing together wasn't fair to themselves or us fans. So now they will each focus on their own solo projects, and the people, and the musician will stay connected as the extended family, that has grown out of the band Cibo Matto. And we'll see the musicians of Cibo Matto crossing paths and helping each other out on various projects.
