Hiromi's concerts are often musical journeys through the centuries. Trained in both classical music and jazz, and equipped with an open mind, a good sense of humour and spectacular hairstyles, the Japanese pianist invites her audience to take part in a parody of a style guide. Echoes of romanticism à la Schumann and Chopin shine through; she celebrates the stride-piano style of Art Tatum or risks electronic experiments reminiscent of the fusion jazz of Joe Zawinul. Hiromi loves intuitive playing; her fingers sometimes fly over the keyboard at breakneck speed – but never at the expense of technical brilliance, wit and variety.

Hiromi was six when she took her first piano lessons, and at the age of 20 she enrolled at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she met her long-standing mentor, the pianist and bandleader Ahmad Jamal. Today, she is mentioned in the same breath as great Japanese pianists like Toshiko Akiyoshi and Junko Onishi.
