Born and raised in Japan, Takada began singing at age ten and in 2010, discovered Jazz in New York. She lived in Houston and performed regularly with pianist, Bob Henschen and other prominent musicians. Takada moved back to Japan in 2017, but visited and performed frequently in Houston and NYC before the Covid-19 pandemic. Finally she returns to Houston to perform a live show with Bob Henschen Trio!
Emi Takada puts plenty of feeling into her interpretations, picks great songs, swings no matter what the tempo, and always displays sincerity while digging deep into the meaning behind the lyrics - Broadway World
It will be a very special evening! Don't miss it!!
