Brise japonaise is a music concert made up of a beautiful mix of traditional, contemporary and folk music with two accomplished musicians, Yuki Isami on flute, and Natsuki Hiratsuka on piano.

Brise japonaise, interpreted by Yuki Isami and Natsuki Hiratsuka, is a recital that is an expression of the blending of Asian heritage and a continuous discovery of Quebec culture, echoing the shock and, above all, the harmony between the past and the present.

The artists will  perform contemporary pieces followed by arrangements of traditional Asian pieces.

She has participated in many international festivals and performed in various orchestras including the Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal and the Orchestre symphonique de Québec. She has also worked on various projects to promote Japanese music and culture in Canada with instruments such as the shinobue, koto, and shamisen. She has notably arranged and performed Musique japonaise: Branches et racines and TSUKI, a musical and visual tale.
