Ryoko Nuruki Afro-Nippon Road - Salle Fitzgerald, showcase
When you look at Ryoko Nuruki, you see a young Japanese jazz pianist, who seems to be frail and to have great delicacy. But when she sit behind her keyboard, all you see is a demon with a percussive and rhythmic game as explosive as a firework. With her innovative compositions, which are simultaneously sophisticated and exhilarating, between modern jazz and traditional and impressionist music, Ryoko Nuruki perfectly blend together musical performance and visual elegancy. Never short of inspiration, without bluster nor shallow effect, her music surprise everyone with its audacity, like a magnificent musical bouquet and its multicolored shades. A smooth and sensitive jazz, almost joyful in its own melancholia, that has the power to transform its energy in pure emotion. Like a rare jewel that just lands on the Jazz Planet, Ryoko casts her gaze full of affection and humanity.
