Internationally acclaimed, chart topping pianist, composer and humanitarian Keiko Matsui took her first piano lesson at five. Fast forward three decades, she has sold over a million and a half albums and continues to sell out concerts across the globe. The album, she made her US recording debut with, was released in 1987. Since then, the striking, petite powerhouse has worked alongside everyone from Miles Davis and Stevie Wonder to Hugh Masekela, Bob James, Kirk Whalum and many more. Being a world citizen, she has always wanted to transcend borders and build bridges among people who share an appreciation of honest artistry and cultural exchange. Her latest CD delivers melodies that seem to come from another dimension. “I want to deliver the most beautiful and emotional experience. I was even amazed myself at just how bright and happy the music is. It reflects where I am right now”, says Keiko. She conceived over 100 different melodies and motifs for that album and eventually settled on the ten themes featured on the CD. A master storyteller, Keiko crafts passionate songs with lush harmonies and global rhythms to create timeless musical anthems.
