Aaron Choulai is an award winning and critically acclaimed pianist and composer whose work is recognised as innovating new directions in jazz, hip-hop and improvised music. From large scale multi media cross-cultural festival commissions. to beat tapes, Choulai’s career spans over 20 years, crossing international borders and intersections between genre and culture. Having spent the last 15 years living in Tokyo, Choulai has become one of Japan’s most prominent musical figures, working with artists such as 5Lack, Otomo Yoshihide, Daichi Yamamoto and Kojoe through his association and position at labels such as  Jazzy Sort and Oilworks as a producer. Choulai has recently returned to
Australia to undertake his appointment as Artistic Director for the Australian Art Orchestra. Choulai premiered a quintet of long time collaborators last year for the MJC, playing original compositions that are a lateral extension of some of his best known projects such as Vada, Raw Denshi and We Don’t Dance for No Reason. Featuring Eugene Ball (trumpet), James Macaulay (trombone), Tom Lee (double bass), Sam Bates (drums), and Aaron Choulai (piano).
