She also studied musical theater with Georges Aperghis and Françoise Rivalland at Hochschule der Künste in Bern. Keiko Murakami obtained a “master professional” in interpretation at Strasbourg University.
Since 2003, Keiko Murakami is principal flutist with Ensemble Linea, with whom she has given numerous world premiers. She is also one of the founding members of L’Imaginaire Musiques d’idées, a group founded in Strasbourg in 2008, in which the composers and instrumentalists work together in search of a new approach to musical creation.
