Meet Minami Fukuda, a Japanese-born soul and blues singer known for her powerful yet sultry vocal style and a penchant for improvisation.
After a successful show in 2022, Minami is making a return to the Royal Room with a fresh lineup of exceptional musicians and performers. Don't miss this opportunity to experience her musical magic.
Minami kickstarted her career in Japan, sharing the stage with world-class blues luminaries like Weeping Harp Senoh and Satoru Hiramatsu.
Her musical journey led her to Seattle, where, alongside her husband, bassist Dylan Hughes, she released her first EP titled "Sum of Us" in 2014, performing under the name Minami & the Cyclophonics. In 2016, her music video for "Only One" captivated audiences.
Minami's influences span a wide spectrum, encompassing artists such as Joss Stone, Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, and the vibrant world of Japanese Pop music. Backed by a talented band, her compelling vocals, sensitive yet powerful, combined with her dynamic stage presence, create an undeniable chemistry.
Chava Mirel is a unique being in the world of music and spirit, defying classifications of style or genre. A multi-award winning musician and composer whose voice was recently featured on a Grammy award winning album, Chava is highly sought-after for collaborations and recordings. Celebrated for her rich, luxurious vocals, lush harmonies, and rhythmic phrasing, Chava is also known for her loving and compassionate presence. Regardless of setting - spiritual gathering, concert hall, classroom or jazz club - she imbues her music and teachings with the universal themes of hope, caring, connection and inclusion.
