Internationally Acclaimed Pianist, Composer & Humanitarian Keiko Matsui Creates Enchanting Global Sonic Tapestry

“There is a strong spiritual quality Keiko Matsui brings to all of her creative projects.”- The Los Angeles Times

“...Pretty melodies and spiritually uplifting anthems.”- JazzTimes Magazine

Acclaimed pianist, composer and humanitarian Keiko Matsui's transcendent and haunting melodies have long sought to build bridges. Her sonic cultural exchange has reached the hearts and minds of fans throughout the world and has allowed the pianist to work alongside icons Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Hugh Masekela and Bob James.

“I would like my music to be a conduit for peace, kindness, love and light,” shares the petite, soft- spoken, yet commanding pianist.

She adds, “My recording Echo is my attempt to capture all of these elements into the vibration of sound.” On February 22, 2019 Keiko Matsui will release her 28th recording as leader, Echo.

A master storyteller, Matsui crafts exquisite compositions replete with lush harmonies and global rhythms to create timeless musical anthems. Like iconic musicians Miles Davis and Shirley Horn, Keiko is also a master at utilizing space in her music to create a backdrop of drama, tension and sheer beauty.
