Hiromi Uehara in Manila

The Japan Foundation, Manila and the Philippine International Jazz and Arts Festival Foundation, will bring to Manila this December, Ms. Hiromi Uehara for a one-night concert on December 17, 8:00 pm at the Harbour Garden of the Sofitel Philippine Plaza.

Hiromi Uehara first mesmerized the jazz community with her 2003 Telarc debut, Another Mind.  Since then she has electrified audiences and critics of both hemispheres with a creative energy that defies the conventional parameters of jazz and pushes musicianship and composition to unprecedented levels of complexity and sophistication. Considered one of Japan’s best jazz pianist and composers, Hiromi has received numerous awards for her music including Jazz Album of the Year Award (2003); Horizon Award (2004); Album of the Year in Swing Journal’s 2005 Readers Poll and Best Jazz Act at the Boston Music Awards and the Guinness Jazz Festival’s Rising Star Award in 2006.

“A Gift of Jazz: Hiromi” also features Japanese Jazz singer, Aisaku Yokogawa.  The event is supported by Delta Air Lines, Sofitel Philippine Plaza and Yamaha.  For ticket inquiries, please email: pijazz@gmail.com or call telephone number 359-1765 or text 0920-9509624.
