Masa Takumi

MESSAGE FROM MASA TAKUMI

“Each spring the presence of cherry blossoms gives us a moment of utmost elegance. With the fleeting nature of this beauty in mind, its blossoming essence is cherished. Through the creation of this album I have given cherry blossoms the ability to bloom, not only in the spring but year-round in each and every moment of our lives. I hope this SAKURA will reach your hearts.”

GRATEFUL

FOR THE NOMINATION


AS ARTISTS WE ALL TREASURE RECOGNITION FROM OUR PEERS for the art that we create. For me, music has always been a very important part of my life and I have been so blessed to be able to be among, and work with, amazingly talented artists that I respect and admire. The Grammy® represents the crown jewel of such recognition, mostly because it comes from our colleagues. I will be forever grateful to them for this blessing and wish that each and everyone of them can also experience this moment.


Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
