Makiko Hirabayashi was born 1966 in Tokyo, Japan where she started playing piano at the age of 4. Spending 5 years of her childhood in Hong Kong – a cultural melting point at the time, has had a lasting impact on her life. At age 20, she won a scholarship to Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she studied for 3 years, absorbing the language of jazz. Since 1990, she has been based in Copenhagen, Denmark, collaborating with numerous musicians both on the jazz scene and the world music scene. Her multicultural background and musical diversity is reflected in her music. Elements of jazz, classical music, Far Eastern music and Nordic sound are all molded uncontrivedly into an intriguing, compelling sound of her own.
Saturday April 25th. Makiko plays with her original trio ‘Surely’ live at HAUS im PARK Bremen as part of the Jazzahead Clubnight.
