Elegant. Masterful. Heartfelt. Acclaimed pianist, composer and humanitarian Keiko Matsui is an icon of contemporary jazz beloved around the globe, with more than 1.2 million albums sold in the U.S. alone. A master storyteller, Matsui crafts exquisite compositions replete with lush harmonies and global rhythms. Her haunting melodies and gentle grooves have won her a diverse and adoring fan base of New Age and jazz fusion enthusiasts.
At Montalvo, she will perform selections from her 2019 release, Echo. “I would like my music to be a conduit for peace, kindness, love, and light” says Matsui. “Echo is my attempt to capture all of these elements into the vibration of sound.”
