Keiko Matsui shoot

Hey guys,

I should let you know that recent­ly I’ve been learn­ing music. One day a friend rec­om­mend­ed me to lis­ten to Keiko Mat­sui‘s music. That was the first time I heard her name and after pur­chas­ing her album “Moyo“, I’ve got to admit that she’s an amaz­ing pianist. Her music is work friend­ly and is pleas­ing to the ears.

Matsui’s music is pow­er­ful and intro­spec­tive, blend­ing both west­ern and east­ern musi­cal influ­ences. She has a very spir­i­tu­al view of com­pos­ing music, feel­ing out each com­po­si­tion as though it were, in her words, “com­ing to me from anoth­er space, anoth­er dimen­sion,” and “catch­ing notes from the silence and then sim­ply plac­ing them togeth­er”. Mat­sui sees music as “the great gifts from the human souls from the past, for the chil­dren of the future”. She believes that music has a pow­er to bring peo­ple togeth­er and change their lives. “We are con­nect­ed by music,” Mat­sui wrote, “as the Ocean con­nects the con­ti­nents”.
