Come Face-to-Face with a Prolific Musician Who Has Traveled the World for Her Art

Experience a melting pot of Japanese and American culture when you see Madoca live! The Japanese-American producer, pianist/keyboardist and composer will perform this Sunday at City Winery. Make plans today to see this unique fusion artist in concert on March 17th!

Madoca Kawahara’s style consists of contemporary and classic jazz, fusion, soul, funk, Latin and Salsa blended together to provide sustenance for your mind and soul. Madoca began studying piano and organ at the age of 7 and graduated the Senzoku Music University in Kawasaki, Japan with a major in Composition and Piano. She had a 3-day live audition before being awarded her scholarship programs at the Nemu Music and she studied jazz piano, jazz theory, ensemble, composition, arrangement, and other related topics under educators from Berklee College of Music.

Madoca got her first taste of show business in 1993 when touring with Japanese national bands and also performing on NHK TV in Tokyo and Osaka. She has performed with several American jazz and R&B bands in Tokyo and Yokohama. In 1994, Madoca moved to Hong Kong where she performed a world tour with various Chinese artists. Her selection, “I Don’t Cry Anymore,” was the winner of Song Writer’s Quest, a competition organized by the CASH. She has worked with numerous American recording artists including Eric Marienthal and Paul Young and has opened for Chris Botti, Richard Elliott, and Jonathan Butler.

Madoca's latest release, "Illusions of Love,” showcases the growth and maturity of this very talented artist, who currently resides in Atlanta. Come see what Madoca’s been working on when you see her live at City Winery on Sunday, March 17th beginning at 8:00 p.m.
