WHAT is "Blooming"





"I want to be a pianist that colorful flowers bloom on the World map where she plays...!"

That was my dream when I was still 6 or 7 years old. I know it is a very abstract dream, but I don't want to forget this dreaming feeling I had when I was a child. So I named my project "Blooming."


It is a cultural, adventurous, and artistic project that I started in March, 2017.


I strongly believe that music brings people together, and makes the World "ONE."


So here is what I do: Collecting folk songs and children's songs from all over the world, and I arrange them into concert style piano pieces. But not a simple arrangement...I put two or three songs together in each piece! Yes that is the multicultural coexistence that I am talking about!
