“We need to collectively go back and recall what connects us all…our spirits, hearts and our souls,” explains Matsui who has lent her voice to raise awareness for such causes as The Daniel Pearl and the Susan G. Komen Foundations. On February 22, 2019 Keiko Matsui will release her 28th recording as leader Echo, continuing her inspired evolution. A master storyteller, Keiko Matsui crafts passionate and emotive songs with lush harmonies and global rhythms to create timeless musical anthems.

“‘Spirit Dance’ was originally born as a song to record with my family on the road (my band). After the melody came to me, with the Brazilian flavor, I immediately thought of Gretchen Parlato who I had met on a cruise a few years ago. I was familiar with her use of voice as percussion, and the chorus section of this song seemed really made for her. Recording with her was a nice reunion, she couldn’t have been nicer and more fun to work with. We connected right off the bat, she totally got into the ‘spirit’ of the song and added such a fantastic element to it.” – Keiko Matsui
