Japanese "kimono" flautist / Composer, Momo-chiyo is a well-known, unique and distinguished artiste. She performs traditional and original Japanese music while dressed in her colourful kimono costumes. Her music and performance are both haunting and spellbinding. She is popular in Japan and Australia and has several CDs to her name.

Tokyo-born Momo-chiyo started playing the piano at the age of nine, then flute studies at the age of ten.
She studied at the Tokyo College of Music and gave her first solo recital in Perth.

In 2007, she wrote her original work "the Snow woman" based on the story of "Yuki onna" by Yakumo Koizumi. The premiere performance was conducted by Consulate General of Japan in Perth.

In January 2009, her "kojo no tsuki" performance was used for TV documentary programme "Bombers moon" PBS Network, United states.

In 2010, she completed the album "Ise ~heart of the Isuzu river" which is combination of natural river sound of the sacred Isuzu river and momochiyo’s flute sound. This album certainly gives an opportunity to meet something very ancient and sacred Japanese beauty.

Latest album is "ISE ~heart of Isuzu river~, available at iTunes store.

She regularly gives concerts both in Australia and Japan.
