Dynamic yet lyrical imagination… whether on her leader projects, as a side musician, at a Sunday service in African-American church, Yayoi always speaks to the soul directly through her music with a huge range of emotions. Yayoi’s source of imagination comes from living everyday to the full each day. Yayoi is energetic, passionate for creativity, curious to collaborate with fellow musicians and people from other fields that involve her mission, and most of all loves her musical family.
Yayoi has performed locally in New York area, and toured nationally as well as internationally. When appearing in Ford del jazz festival in Italy with her trio, Yayoi surprised the audience with her neo-jazz New York sound. Born in Tokyo, Japan, but raised musically in New York, Yayoi can be defined as a pure expression of New York modern jazz, not only has she lived in the metropolis for eight years, but also because her taste, sound, and energy are rooted in that area.
