Sagolikt slagverk från Tokyo!

Mika Takehara är en skicklig soloslagverkare utbildad i både Japan och Sverige. 1992 började hon studera vid Toho Gakuen College of Music i Tokyo för professorerna Yoshitaka Kobayashi, Kyoichi Sano och marimbavirtuosen Keiko Abe. Efter sin examen 1996 fortsatte hon på Toho Gakuen och fick sitt forskardiplom året därpå.
    1997 blev hon inbjuden att studera vid Kungliga Musikhögskolan i Stockholm för professor Anders Loguin från Kroumata. Där fick hon högsta betyg och ett solistdiplom som innebar att hon fick uppträda med Kungliga Filharmonikerna.
 Solodebuten skedde dock mycket tidigare än så, närmare bestämt 1998 med Kroumataensemblen. Samma år gjorde hon flera solistframträdanden vid International Percussion Event. Därefter har hennes strålande solistkarriär fortsatt med konserter och festivaler i Sverige, Japan och Europa.
