Andy Akiho is a “trailblazing” (Los Angeles Times) Pulitzer Prize and GRAMMY®-nominated composer whose bold works unravel intricate and unexpected patterns while surpassing preconceived boundaries of classical music. The physicality of playing that Akiho experiences as a steel pannist is an embedded aspect of his musical practice and naturally extends itself into his compositional output. From inception to performance, Akiho’s music-making is inextricably linked to the shared human experience.
