Diana Yukawa has released 6 solo albums with Sony Music, BMG, Longbody Music and is currently signed to 1631 Recordings, part of Universal Music Group.

The solo violinist released her debut album at age 14 and she was acknowledged as one of the country’s top 10 artists. Following her second release a year later, Diana decided she wanted to write and perform her own original music – and this passion has captivated her in equal measures to being a solo violinist and performer ever since.

Diana was born in Tokyo before moving to London at 3 months old, where she would be raised. She began learning the violin at age 5 and Diana had the great privilege of studying with the late, great master, Ruggiero Ricci, as well as such distinguished Professors as Maurice Hasson, Hu Kun, Rodney Friend and Natasha Boyarsky.

Through her colourful career to date, the half-English, half-Japanese violinist has performed solo at some of the world’s most auspicious venues - dazzling audiences at Latitude Festival, Wilderness Festival, the Royal Albert Hall, Place Des Arts, Burj Dubai and to a sold-out Hollywood Bowl, to name a few.

Diana is a keen collaborator and has worked with Craig Armstrong, Jeff Beck, Nitin Sawhney, John Foxx as well as some of the worlds greatest Orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic, English Chamber and BBC Concert Orchestra.
