Keiko Matsui

Part of the Folly Jazz Series

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