Come and experience Nobuko’s musical world, featuring works from the new album “Inorikaze” (Prayer Wind) and newer works expressing her Middle Eastern influences, craftily interwoven with personal stories.

A passionate and emotive flutist/shinobue (Japanese bamboo flute) player/composer, Nobuko Miyazaki draws influences from classical, jazz, Japanese, and Arabic music, embracing traditions and transcending them. She has performed across the world, including at BBC Proms in the Park and as a soloist at Carnegie Hall. Her orchestral composition “Inorikaze” was premiered in 2013 by Manhattan Symphonie.

She is joined by the highly acclaimed oud player/composer Brian Prunka (Nashaz, Near East River Ensemble) who works with greats such as Simon Shaheen, Michael Bates, and Ravish Momin; a truly multicultural drummer/percussionist Arei Sekiguchi whose beats reflect everything from jazz, samba, and Latin American music; and the award-winningpianist/composer Emi Inaba, who is Nobuko’s decade-long collaborator across three continents.

Nobuko is passionate about children’s rights and education, and a portion of the album sales will be donated for the cause.
