“When my favorite uncle died suddenly, I decided to pursue my one and only passion.” For Mari Tochi, that love was for music. After years of working at a Japanese publishing company Mari made a leap of faith to pursue her dream of a musical career. Exposure to Jazz while attending school in the US would give a new form to that love.
On May 10, 2009, Mari celebrated her birthday with the birth of her first musical creation, the CD “Arigato [aligato],” a fusion of Jazz and the many different elements of music that have played such an important part in her life.
On June 8, 2009 Mari Tochi was kind enough to give an interview to J-Pop World. Mari Tochi interview.
