Momoko Kamiya has released her new CD “Pieces of Peace”. You can read more about it at her Facebook announcement page.
I had the privilege of meeting Momoko Kamiya at the Marimba 2010 International Festival and Conference. She premiered a piece called “Blossoms in the Sunlight” on the opening concert and was part of my previous blog post about the festival.
At minimum everyone should go spend $1 and buy that track right now. It is similar to “Land” and very lyrical and gorgeous. Another favorite is “HATO-OTO” which has a surprisingly jazzy section and is another one of my marimba solo favorites of recent years.
She teams up with Bodgan Bacanu on “Atom Hearts Duo” as well which I will be spending more time listening to this week.
Go support another marimbist and purchase these tracks today!
