World Heart Beat

Japanese musicians: EFG London Jazz Festival

Here at World Heart Beat we have had the pleasure of collaborating with Yokohama Calling, a producer presenting high-quality Japanese artists in cross-cultural events. We have hosted world class musicians such as Erisa Ogawa, Sumire Kuribayashi and Hideaki Kanazawa.

On Sunday 25th November, May Inoue will be performing at the EFG London Jazz Festival. 

At just 27 years old, Japanese guitar sensation, May Inoue already has three solo albums to his name and has recorded alongside Kazumi Watanabe, and played live with Kurt Rosenwinkel. He is a graduate of the prestigious Berklee Music College in the US and has earned various accolades in Japan, not least “Album of the Year” in 2011 for his debut EMI record, “First Train”.

For his first UK outing, May Inoue will be joined by Jason Rebello: keys, Jay Phelps: trumpet, Kaz Rodriguez: drums, Davide Mantovani: bass.

The programme will feature many of May’s compositions from his various releases straddling a variety of musical styles and influences. With contributions also from Jason Rebello and Kaz Rodriguez, Yokohama Calling are very excited to be facilitating this unique meeting of musical talent and the possibilities it will bring.

World Heart Beat uses the power of music to inspire, bring people together and make a positive impact
