OCT 24, 2019

Internationally acclaimed pianist, composer and humanitarian Keiko Matsui's transcendent and haunting melodies have long sought to build bridges. Her unique melting pot of musical influences has garnered her a devout international following. In the words of Duke Ellington, Keiko Matsui is “beyond category.” The renowned pianist has worked alongside the best including Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Hugh Masakela and Traverse City’s own, Bob James.

The petite, soft-spoken, yet commanding keyboardist is a master storyteller crafting exquisite compositions replete with lush harmonies and global rhythms to create timeless musical anthems. In February 2019, Keiko Matsui released her 28th recording as leader, Echo, which she co-produced with Grammy-nominated Bud Harner.

Keiko Matsui continues to cement her place as one of the most dynamic and important voices in instrumental music.
