Duo 彩 AYA, a dynamic collaboration between virtuoso players Rachel Woolf, flute, and Makana Jimbu, marimba, brings together two distinct musical voices across the globe to redefine the boundaries of chamber music. With Rachel based in the vibrant city of San Antonio, Texas, and Makana rooted in the bustling metropolis of Tokyo, Japan, their collaboration creates an electrifying musical partnership that resonates across cultures and continents.


Their upcoming Cycles tour is a testament to their unwavering dedication to the creation and performance of new works. Their commissioned compositions by Evan Williams, Miriama Young, Paul Millette, and Fumihiro Ono are set to enrich the flute and marimba repertoire, showcasing Duo 彩 AYA’s commitment to the evolution of their art form. With every note they play, Duo 彩 AYA forges connections across continents and cultures, leaving an indelible mark on the world of music.

"These are two of the finest musicians I have ever worked with in my 30 years at the UNT College of Music. Their Passion and artistry is mesmerizing. Take advantage of any chance you may have to hear them perform. You won't regret sharing time in their sonic orbit."
