Diana Yukawa is a classically-trained violinist who has taken on a more contemporary, popular sound with her instrument.
Yukawa made her first album of short classical pieces, La Campanella (Elegy in the UK), at the age of 15. The album was a best seller in Japan and was followed by Concerto, featuring the music of Camille Saint-Saëns
the next year (2001). It was eight years before Yukawa released her third album, The Butterfly Effect, which featured her own music, a fusion of lyrical melodies, instrumental backing, and some dance beats in stylish productions. The contemporary, popular sound has proven successful for her. She has appeared with other musicians such as Jeff Beck
, Paul Oakenfold
, Craig Armstrong
, John Foxx
, and Katherine Jenkins
, and at events such as the 2012 Dubai World Cup, the Tivoli Festival in Copenhagen, and as part of the Canadian, multi-media spectacular Vincero with soprano Anne-Marie Faniel. ~ Patsy Morita, Rovi
