Award-winning marimbist Eriko Daimo is one of the leading artists in her field. She has recently performed with such elite orchestras as the RTE Ireland National Symphony Orchestra, Tampere Philharmonic in Finland and the Nagoya Philharmonic Orchestra, among others. As an educator, she has given concerts and masterclasses at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, the Paris Conservatory and the Colburn Conservatory, to name a few.
