Keiko Abe is a marimba virtuoso who has travelled all over the world popularising the marimba and devoting herself to expanding the instrument’s repertoire. She was rewarded in Japan for these efforts with the Prize for Excellence at the annual Arts Festival sponsored by the Agency for Cultural Affairs in 1968, 1971, 1974 and 1976. She has achieved an acclaimed reputation as a result of her unique performing activities.

In addition to a number of performances every year in Europe and the United Sates, Keiko Abe is also positively engaged in teaching activities, holding positions as lecturer in the music departments of Toho Gakuen Conservatory and Soai University and as visiting professor at the Utrecht Conservatory, Holland.
