I had a chat with the exceptional musician Laura Mvula a couple of days after seeing her live show in Tokyo in June 2013. One of the BBC Sound of 2013 nominees Laura’s music is mezmerizing both recorded and live – Laura singing and playing piano plus her band featuring drums, keyboards, double bass, cello, violin, harp and everyone on backing vocals!!

Christopher Hanzie

My dear darling friend Christopher Hanzie gave me 23 years of friendship, fun and laughs. He was one of the first people I met when I came to Tokyo in 1990, we became great friends and had so many wonderful experiences over the years. Christopher also designed many of my logos, graphics and flyers. Words cannot express my gratitude for his loving, funny, inspiring friendship – thank you Christopher.
Here are some of my favourite pics and designs we worked on together.
And back in 2007 I recorded his brilliant laugh for my podcast Tokyo Expresso – click on the play button below and listen to why Christopher made so many people happy..
