Nikki Yanofsky

I previously mentioned the “Ginza International Jazz Festival” we “won” tickets for back in October. What I didn’t mention is the only international performer on the bill was Nikki Yanofsky, the very same 16-year old (she was 15 at the time) who just sang the Canadian national anthem, “O Canada”, at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony.

The location was Kabukiza (歌舞伎座) in Ginza, Tokyo. This very old Kabuki Theater is set for demolition just a few weeks from now.

Here is a video I took of a piece of Nikki Yanofsky’s performance. Nikki Yanofsky performs “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and Sadao Watanabe joins her on sax.
