Keiko Matusi – “Water lily”

Discovered this pianist by chance, while surfing YouTube. This piece sounded very serene. Builds up near the end, and then calms down again. Like the journey of a water lily through a pond, cascading down a waterfall, finding itself in another pond. The lily fades away but lays the seeds for new growth. 🙂

Was it just me, or does the tune have flavours of traditional Japanese melodies? It has an oriental sound to it. Interesting…
