Diana Yukawa to Perform at the 2013 BBA

May 29, 2013


Announcing that special guest Diana Yukawa will perform at the 2013 British Business Awards (November 1, Mandarin Oriental Tokyo)

Guests at the 2013 British Business Awards (BBA) ceremony, to be held November 1 at the Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo, will be treated to a special feature performance by violinist and songwriter Diana Yukawa.

Hailed as a virtuoso violinist in the classical world upon her debut in Japan in 2000, the Tokyo-born, London-based artist has released three successful albums with Sony Music and BMG Japan, and collaborated with Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra and BBC Concert Orchestra conductors Robin Stapleton and Grant Llewellyn.

In recent years Diana has expanded her musical range through recording collaborations and live performances with some of the most respected and influential names in modern music, including award-winning film score composer Craig Armstrong (The Great Gatsby), trance DJ Paul Oakenfold, electronic music pioneer John Foxx and legendary guitarist Jeff Beck. She has also blossomed as a talented songwriter and entertainer in her own right.

Diana’s album The Butterfly Effect, released in 2009, heralded a new sound and musical direction. Her upcoming 2013 EP Finding the Parallel reveals maturity as a composer of emotionally resonant electronic and orchestral music that appeals to an ever-widening fan base. Its UK release in March coincided with an impromptu songwriting session and interview with British songwriter Nitin Sawhney for BBC RADIO 2, resulting in the track Jaipur, which was selected by John Waite as BBC Radio Pick of the Week. Following was an appearance as VIP performer at the Royal Albert Hall at The Night of 1000 Stars annual benefit concert, which raised money for Gloria Hunniford’s cancer support charity, The Caron Keating Foundation.

At this year's BBA, guests can expect an unforgettable musical experience from this unique and talented artist.
