The highly lauded musician has won two GRAMMYs and has been championed by composers from Olivier Messiaen and Toru Takemitsu to Mel Torme and Judy Collins. The husband and wife team have been performing extensively as a duo since 2014. Marimbist Mika also transcends boundaries, performing in both the classical, jazz, and new music realms.
